If you’re looking for a really poor opinion piece by someone who doesn’t understand biology, followed by a bunch of even less informed comment, try Human evolution has stalled, over at Kuro5hin. You thought I was going to say Slashdot, didn’t you!
- “runs counter to the purpose of evolution”
- “evolution itself encourages adaptive traits while weeding out maladaptive traits”
- “for untold millenia, natural selection has directed the evolution of life on this planet, gradually from simple primordial goo into more complex life forms”
and of course, a complete failure to understand “fitness” in the Darwinian sense.
One of those evolution bloggers needs to go over there and sort them out. You reading this RPM?
