Cladists think (believe) that they can find a “true tree of life”, although process and pattern are orthogonal, ie diametrically opposed. This belief is thus analogous to a belief that one can eat a cake at the same time as keeping it. The belief is thus so incomprehensibly stupid that counterarguments is difficult to find. How can one argue against someone that believe that the impossible is possible?
