Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

Patrick You raise the real life scenario and quite rightly so, but what is this real life scenario demonstrating. HGT is a major factor here. However what does it say about one of the central doctrines of Darwinism, Common Descent. It took Carl Woese decades to have his views of a separate domain of...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

Patrick I wouldn't argue with you regarding the exchange of genetic information in real life. You have the real life experience, I don't. I can only refer to the papers by biologists themselves. Why Lenski has not sought out a real life environment, only he can answer. I expect it has to do with con...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

Steve I don’t know if you have actually checked the papers themselves that Chris Stassen has referenced to show speciation as he claims. His first example is here m Now if you wish to read the entire paper and fry your brain as it has mine please go ahead However may I refer you to the summary on pa...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

Steve Just to clarify I was responding to the question which you probably may not have fully appreciated My question is whether there have been any experiments conducted that provide empirical support for macroevolution. Has there been any experiments that show an organism changing to something diff...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

Hi Steve Thanks very much for your kind thoughts. Happily my wife is a nurse although she does come over as matron more often than not. jveg’s interpretation of the LTEE misstates what the data from the experiment actually show. The experiment was designed as a test of two alternative hypotheses: th...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

My apologies for not responding to the last few posts. I have been otherwise engaged not the least of which is a back injury I have sustained. However I am back again. I will catch up with the posts and continue shortly. I notice Stevepush has put up an appraisal of the LTEE experiment . I will stud...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

StevePush I hope my response to canolan explains more my position. My whole point is that Darwinism is falsifiable and the evidence is showing it to be so. Since it is being falsified with evidence, and at the same time still being regarded as a scientific theory (indeed as fact) this is what has t...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

canalon Sorry for the delay but have been otherwise occupied. Life outside this forum you know I am a Radio/Radar Engineer (now retired). I agree with your last comment. Creationism is based on faith and cannot be subjected to scientific enquiry. Where I would add to your comment is that Darwinism w...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

canalon Your honesty is very refreshing, and this is in no way a patronising comment. I agree that because I don’t see an advantage does not mean there is none. What I disagree with is the a priori position that speciation is a product of some Darwinian mechanism and that position is a scientific f...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

I asked a simple question “what do you think? You raise an interesting scenario. Maybe it makes it easier to crawl into small holes/spaces, or maybe something else that cannot be seen but was advantageous for the snake's ancestor. May I refer you to Richard Ellisin’s book AquaGenesis where he puts i...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

JackBean You can have plenty of mutations causing basically nothing, but you can have like one mutation, which changes "everything" When you say “everything” I have to assume you mean “speciation or novel body plan” because that is what this question is all about. Can you therefore point ...

Re: Evolution of sexual reproduction

You may well be right about paleontology being a lottery If you are though the entire geological column and the dates arrived at upon, which paleontology relies on becomes a questionable science discipline. The Principle of Faunal Succession is one of the four cornerstones on which Stratigraphy’s re...
