Beyond Reasonable Doubt #1 - The Lenski Experiments

A look on the long term study of e coli evolution in the lab. Dr Richard Lenski and his team have spent 20 years (working with around 45,000 generations of e coli) scrupulously experimenting and documenting their findings on how competition for limited resources results in natural selection of beneficial mutations within the population.

I appreciate you sharing so many thought provoking videos with us. What do you think of this article I just came upon?

I recognise the name Jürgen Habermas but I can't recall anything he has written wich I have read.

Jürgen Habermas is not a person of direct influence to me or my opions.

I am not fond of reading a person telling what another person have said/written.

A lot is lost in translations and I am terrible at German.

In this case there is both a translator from German to English and then a person (Stanley Fish) interpreting on what Jürgen Habermas thinks.

Thats bad to re-comment on.

I like this Richard Dawkins calls for arrest of Pope Benedict XVI
