[Replying to 'why isn't antibiotic resistance evolution?']Because evolution is a process of gradual change and bacteria can become resistant to antibiotics in a short period of time.

Wow, this is a new argument. Don't know much about bacteria do you Magus?

And you have a degree in biology?

No? Figures.

Seriously, they keep clutching their straws, and everyone else is seeing the inanity of it all...except them

Gradual change OVER GENERATIONS. Since bacteria can reproduce over the process of a few hours, the time is naturally shortened.

Evolution is a process of gradual change... Wait a minute... Aren't these the same people who think that a human coming out of a gorilla = evolution?

My irony meter just imploded.

Bacteria generations are much shorter, the space of a few hours.

Bacteria have a shitload of babies every hour to 15-hours.

Ahhhhhh. There it is.

Anyway, this is retarded for the following reasons:

• Magus is a stupid name.
• it comes from Rapture Ready.
• The generation times for bacteria are mere hours or minutes and they are more vulnerable to genetic mutations. Their astoundingly high population densities also provide an extremely variable cross-section for resistance in any given selection event.
• FUCK YOU, that's why.
