Why not? I would really like to know why you think a mathematical demonstration is not possible.

I think we are coming from a very similar place in our mistrust of the Algorithms employed by evolutionary biologists. But, you've chosen to attack them head on. Disproving them doesn't prove anything.

Of course, to my understanding, contemporary physics lacks a unified theory. That is, quantum mechanics and Newton's formulas are incompatible. There are at least six attempts to resolve this (superstring theories) and none has emerged as a clear favorite. This means, we still can't account for gravity.

That's a pretty big hole. But we can be pretty certain about gravity right? So, it's not such a stretch to say that natural selection is a real thing. Just because the math doesn't measure up, let's not jump to conclusions.

Finally, you should really P-box me. I'm not going to change anything I write one whit because you don't happen to like it, and if you attack me like this I promise you I will try my best to make you look stupid.

I'm not going to P-box anyone.
