I think it would be only referring to Lamarckism if the question asked whether those traits could then be passed on to his/her children. I think the general question is that whether you can make changes to your own body that would change one of your traits. The answer to that would be yes - for exam...

Re: Re:

Yes: (continuous) evolutionism assumes life appeared from inorganic matter, spontaneously (or through electrical storms, it doesn't really matter), mutation by mutation... an experience thus to be repeated in a lab, to create "spontaneously" life from the dust... I still don't think this ...

Re: Re:

Just a few relevant points. begin creating a virus from the dust spontaneously... This is not a logical criterion; if we "begin creating" something, then by definition, it will not have happened "spontaneously." Could you please clarify? Similarly - by "dust," do you me...

Re: Creation of species through programmed evolution

You're saying that your theory is the null hypothesis? That would mean that if nobody proves you wrong, you are right. That is not how a null works. If I say there is a teapot buried on the dark side of the Moon - I think it's fairly clear that this "theory" predicts that if you go to the ...

Definitely. One example of this is the rous sarcoma virus (RSV), which picked up a copy of the src gene. The discovery of this was a major milestone in our understanding of cancer, because the virus uses the (now mutated) gene to cause tumours. One consideration, though, is that viruses are so small...

I can't evaluate whether or not your theory/hypothesis is scientific - or its degree of correctness, which is a separate matter - because you haven't answered my questions. Where have you applied the scientific method? What null hypothesis have you used? What verifiable evidence distinguishes your m...

Re: Natural selection and logic

Your question includes assumptions that you'll need to make explicit and defend. I think that the main one is along the lines of, "Certain biological occurrences are impossible without a decision-making entity that makes an explicit choice to bring those things about." Those occurrences a...

...You did not answer my questions. Furthermore, only your first and last paragraphs actually addressed the topic I was asking about. Falsifiability only means that that we are able to apply the scientific method - it does not mean that the process of science stops there. It is possible to produce a...

You have to demonstrate this first. Where have you applied the scientific method? What null hypothesis have you used? What verifiable evidence distinguishes your model from the null?
