In August 2004 I received an email inquiry from plant biologist Art Hunt. He had written a draft for a blog piece reviewing a research article of mine.
The idea that it isn’t hard to stumble upon things that are good for something doesn’t explain the origin of exquisite things.
He says, "Recombination can do all the things that Axe thinks are impossible." Can it really? Please show me, Martin!
Biologists, unlike chemists or physicists, tend to think they are doing science when they name things.
Since some of Poenie’s criticisms touch on my work, I’ll offer my perspective in a few posts, each focusing on one of Poenie’s posted comments.
