RE: Gaia theropod follow-up: a "new" phylogeny
Regarding the last sentence - ALL matrices need to be tweaked to "work."
All of us are professional tweakers. I'm at home with my oatmeal now, but
I'm on my way to the museum to tweak the day away. Every paper in Syst Bio
has some tweaking in it. Why is this a problem?
Because the tweaking becomes the authors call and beliefs. I.e. he doesn't
agree with the computer and changes the outcome. Then why use the computer?
