Re: Re:

I don't do maths, but using logic instead, it seems that if you only get double the number by muliplying by ten, when dividing by ten you would get a catastrophic drop. If you have an area of ten with two species, then an area of one hundred has four species. How many species if you divide one hund...

Re:

I have contradicted the idea that an unfalsifiable hypothesis is necessarily outside the boundaries of scientific inquiry. I don't see how, but I suspect that your usage of "hypothesis" is other than what I take it to generally mean. Generally, as I understand the usage in science, a hypo...

Re:

I was referring to events purely within the natural sciences with no metaphysical or philosophical aspect in mind. With the word/term 'determinism' I meant that each reaction in the world is determined by the reactions preceding it and that each reaction determines the reactions succeeding it. 'Rea...

Re:

Finally, do you think that everything is open, that nothing is determined or destined to happen, and if so, where does this uncertainty and possibility for different outcomes stem from? If the world we inhabit is a non-determined world, then nothing is determined. Determinism is a global thesis, al...

Re: Re:

Now, I may have not fully understood your example, as to me it still seems that you take the one exit you take based on the stimulus obtained from your environment. . . Determinism is a global thesis; a world is determined if the following three conditions obtain: 1) at all times the world has a de...

Re:

For those people, I would ask the following: If you are in a room that has two one-way exits and you leave the room via one of them, can you ever be sure that you could have also taken the other exit? And if so, is there any way for you or anyone to prove that you genuinely had the chance to take t...

So, are you proposing an alternative theory of inheritance?
. . . I suggest reading the book Evolution in Four Dimensions by Eva Jablonka Marion J. Lamb. . .
Thanks, but none of this will tell me what Jumma's proposal is.

Okay, for the moment take it that I'm persuaded by your argument. What is your theory of inheritance?

Re: Natural selection is proven wrong

can you just answer the simple question with a yes or no do you think this point of deans is cogent if the process is random then genetics cannot account for why a species appears.... In order to comment on that, I would need the answers to, at least, the first two of my questions. As you refused t...
