Re: Theories - Origin of Life

I do not believe in Creation or ID. Good for you. The answer was not responsive to any of the questions asked. Okay, okay. The existence of gods cannot be falsified by science, but little evidence supports it. I have no desire to present the evidence supporting evolution. As I said, any decent libr...

You have come on this forum because you believe that evolution is false. The onus is not on us to defend evolution. A decent library will do that. The onus is on you to falsify it.

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

Scottie, I guess you didn't follow my suggestion of doing some research into the Cambrian explosion (avoiding any sources from religious organisations). I still encourage you to do so, but I'll just make a few pertinent points here: 1) very few organisms fossilise, especially those without hard part...

Re: the hard working liver

When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be the boss. The brain said, "since I control everything and do all the thinking, I should be the boss." The feet said, "since I carry man where he wants to go and get him in position to do what the brain wants, then I should be th...

Re: Camouflage in nature

we don’t see that many military snipers fully relying on just a greenish outfit acquired in a local Gap store My purpose in introducing the population concept was to indicate that survival depends on what else is present for the predators. In a population of a million bugs, an ever-so-slightly gree...

Re: Basis of theory evolution?

What I meant (and I think what the original question was getting at) is that the initial formation of the first molecule capable of self-replication has nothing to do with evolution. A misunderstanding only. I agreed fully with your post, which resolved the OP's question, but only wished to add tha...

Re: Camouflage in nature

Unlike in the eye example, I don’t see a gradual enhancement of an immediately useful feature, but rather an application of a set of features which only become useful if they are fully completed and simultaneously applied. Maybe the missing element here is that bugs exist in populations. Variable p...

Re: Basis of theory evolution?

Many people, though, think that an abiogenic origin of life may (some think must) have involved a selection process similar to natural selection. Any molecule that was capable of self-replication would produce more of itself than other molecules. Those that acquired a change that improved their abil...

Tehy do not quote any time line and just conclude that: The rapid spread of an initially unique haplotype, driven by strong positive selection, is expected to generate the profile of linkage disequilibrium we have observed (18), establishing that UK industrial melanism in the peppered moth was seed...

So if both evolution and your devolution have no direction, what is it you're trying to say?
