Give neo-atheist blowhard PZ Myers some credit: when he says it's wrong to tolerate nonsense, he doesn't just mean creationist numbnuttery. Myers also takes a dim view of the way people who affirm the validity of species evolution misrepresent it. In a lecture at the Center For Inquiry in LA earlier this year, he took aim at bad evolutionary biology that equates adaptation with evolution.
So you say natural selection is the driving force behind species evolution? That traits or features in living organisms have each been selected for in a vast, ongiong, billion-year-old tournament between selfish genes? In that case, Myers wants a word with you.
