How brave to disable ratings like that.

The following is my reply to the lie:

Those aren't relevant figures. It doesn't matter how many of the peptides you can build from the acids that make the protein are also functional proteins but how they are organized in the search-space. If they are similar to each other (as they tend to be) than evolution can work. Also it's hardly fair to cite one marginal disputed opinion as absolute truth while ignoring the rest of the science.

This video is just tossing large numbers around.


I posted it on youtube. Let's see if it lasts.

Edit: Apparently, the comment is awaiting approval. I don't know about you but I don't like my odds of getting approved for saying something that is, you know, true.
