Has any evidence been found yet?
I know this thread is old but is there anyone who can present evidence that ToE has been falsified (not how it could be, I mean actual evidence that has falsified ToE)?

Any potential falsifications?
Hi Michael.
As you can see there has been a bit of a pile on, here. The reason for this is that the points you make are very common misconceptions many creos hold as givens.
I guess what I'm looking for is a smoking gun that can say that ToE is factually wrong.
But the one stipulation is that this smoking gun must be made of science and not religion.
Can you help me out?

Any one for another go?
So, is there any one out there on tinterweb who can provide a smoking gun and support it with actual evidence?

Re: Has any evidence been found yet?
Just to echo what Crash and nwr have stated.
Mendel's Accountant is not an accurate model of reality.
GIGO at work here, I think.
Dr. Sanford ... ...has a long track record of getting his papers published in the scientific community.
When you read as many substandard peices of research as I have to you understand that a lot of what gets published is awful research (sometimes I feel like I'm reading about a strange land where error bars are an extinct species!).

Yup, thats me in my old Boba Fett incarnation.
I normally hang out in the ID/Evo threads being a bit more mature and handsom than I am here.

Re: Research track record
That's a fair point.
I guess I was mostly trying to point out that being publish isn't all that, mostly.

Rabbits are going extinct are they?
I thought they bred like....
I'm sorry you are forced to read awful research. Us creos have been reading the circles for years.
Circular logic, you mean!
Boom! Boom!

Re: Has any evidence been found yet?
Relative fitness is quantified as the average number of surviving progeny of a particular genotype compared with average number of surviving progeny of competing genotypes after a single generation, i.e. one genotype is normalized at w = 1 and the fitnesses of other genotypes are measured with respect to that genotype. Relative fitness can therefore take any nonnegative value, including 0.
So nothing to do with ancestral populations then; which I think was Crash's point.
