A mutation is a change in the genetic code. It does not start before the DNA is changed by chemical or other means. You do not make sense. In fact the more you are trying to argue the more you are showing your complete ignorance of the subject at hand. I gave you a link to a place where you can go a...

Dean's point is stupid beyond description. There are genetic mechanisms for the insertion of viral DNA in an host DNA. The description of which can be found in a textbook (there are plenty available on the NCBI Bookshelf: m) You might also find how viruses do infect their hosts, That not all viruses...

Mutations are not a controlled process, they arise because of errors during the replication process because the enzyme are not perfect. Environmental damage to the DNA (UV, chemicals, etc ) are there and do damage DNA. Viruses do insert themselves in the DNA for their own purpose, they do not care a...

Dean or Gamila never made a cogent point beyond that of proving their lack of understanding of molecular biology. By Resurrecting a dead thread and making pointless comment without bringing any new argument by yourself, you are proving that you are worse than them. I suggest you go an study biology ...

And? Where is the demonstration of autonomous decision making? The intelligence of the swarm appear to be more related to that of the smart observer looking at the swarm, and that is a human (or a bot programmed by a human). No demonstration of autonomous thinking or anything. So right now you are n...

[Mod Note] although it appears to be addressed to a person in a similarly named thread this post is so unrelated to the content of the thread that it has no business to be there.
