I almost bought this until I cracked it open


Evolution is non-mathematical? Has the man never heard of population genetics? Has he never heard of computational phylogenetics?

The author may know his way around physics and mathematics, but he should have called in some help when he started writing about biology.


Can someone invite the author here? I wonder what he would do to justify those claims.

I thought about doing that but it looks like he has passed away unfortunately

If I mess up during my dissertation defense, I think I’m going to tell my committee that it’s okay because evolution is non-mathematical. Think that will fly?


I think you should put those two picture in your introduction.

There’s a reason the adage “you can’t judge a book by its cover” was coined.

Reminds me of an old Rodney Dangerfield joke. Rodney wanted to be a better person so at a garage sale he picked up a book titled HOW to HUG. Took it home and discovered it was Vol.7 of an encyclopedia. :grin:


There’s an internet story going around about a book entitled How to Make Ducks Pay. Turns out not to be a way of punishing duck sins, but a guide to duck-farming.
