For years we’ve been told that human and chimp DNA is some 99 percent identical. Is that true?
Swamidass got it wrong, and it’s perfectly appropriate for me to confront him on that. I wasn’t talking about any approach to human argumentation at all.
For my part, I think it’s better to approach the data without assumptions and to let the evidence speak for itself.
What a peculiar thing to do. You invite someone for a “dialogue” and then, only once he’s left the building, do you start debating with him.
