Re: The Perth Group "answer" to Christopher Noble

I have concentrated on your argument about genomic differences precisely because it is unmistakably and undeniably false.

You have claimed: "By comparison, two RNA containing viruses (polio and influenza, the latter after 27 years of dormancy,) vary by less than 1%"

I have provided you with Genbank Accession numbers for poliovirus sequences that differ from each other by around 20%.

AY184219, AY184220, AY184221

This directly falsifies your claims, yet you continue to claim that you are correct.

This is not only dishonest but also foolhardy. These sequences are available for anyone to check. The evidence is right there but you refuse to see it.

If you refuse to accept this then there is no point in delving into etymological discussions about the meaning of the word 'isolation'.
