I apologize to the readers of bionet.molbio.evolution for this intrusion.
The original discussion that Anthony Pelletier refers to took place in
sci.bio.evolution ("Testability of Natural Selection").

I will be responding in sci.bio.evolution. (In case anyone here is interested
Pelletier is correct - I did refer to work by Benzer and Crick when I should
have said Brenner and Crick.)
