My reference to metamorphosis simply illustrates that changes in phenotype do not require changes in genotype

I agree
as the theory states. Something else is at work.


Nope, the theory doesn't state that mutations ALONE can cause change in phenotypes. Where does Dawkins or anyone say that?

By the way, I'd like you to cite some sources before you respond, I can barely understand what you're saying.

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

The standard theory states that random mutations to the genome cause (gradually) the different phenotypic changes does it not? Are you subscribing to a different theory? Does it state mutations alone can cause pheontypic changes? That seems to be your point, right? I'd love some sources on that. Ph...

By the way why do you use the term "Darwinism"? Does it make you feel any better?

One of the most outstanding examples is the caterpillar and butterfly. Both organisms have the same genome, yet how different they are in phenotype and all this change takes place within about two weeks.


Where does it say that similar genotype aren't capable of producing different phenotypes?

Where did I say that? I said most of the pathogenic bacteria/fungi are parasitic in nature :roll:

Okay, here's a dumbed down version for you, Bacteria - unicellular organisms which produce toxins as they grow and divide Virus - protien shells packed with genetic information - which are considerably smaller than a cell. It can't reproduce outside the cell unlike bacteria, so they invade the cells...
