I just ran across your debate with Scott Page. Did you know he is still using the same bad reasoning?

Follow up debate on this and other things is at:

http://all-too-commo...reationist.html
http://all-too-commo...inologists.html
http://all-too-commo...e-to-crevo.html

And then further bloviating by the professor is here:

Anyway, apparently he really loves that argument, despite the fact that he should have stopped using it four years ago.

The discussions within the links you provided, were to complicated (for me) to follow.
I got the impression they are discussing the relevance of mutation rates, but the personal nature of the discussions led me to suspect there is considerable ‘history’ between the two gentlemen and much of the conversation on both sides was point scoring, rather than sticking to the facts.

Thanks for the info. This is of course not at all surprising. I believe he recognizes just how damaging Haldane's Dilemma is to his religion of evolution, and why he seems so obsessed with this issue, that especially hits home for him since it's related (somewhat) to his area of expertise. I'm sure he'll be fighting against Haldane's Dilemma with the same lame arguments until the day he dies.
