Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

When I stated So if DNA is not wholly responsible for the body-plan ,(which is a fact) then DNA sequences can mutate indefinitely and still not produce a new body plan. But speciation requires a new body plan. I was stating a fact. I resisted the urge to provide evidence simply because of your state...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

Geokinkladze Evolution has happened, and that is a fact. Natural selection is happening, that is also a fact. I fully agree with you and it is good to be at one on this. This is something that both empirical evidence and research supports and is good sound science. There are things that science is ...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

The whole statement reads Yes there is empirical evidence and NO it does not support “macroevolution”. Now if that is not clear enough then may be it is the English language that has the problem Look I understand your need to use rhetorical devices to veer away from what the evidence is revealing. I...

Re: Evolution of sexual reproduction

Geokinkladze Well I have waited nearly a month for Darby to clarify his statements. Since he has been active on other threads I assume he does not wish to do so. I have no idea if your understanding of his statement is correct or not. I would have thought that 150 years of accumulating evidence sin...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

Apologies for the delay. I was away longer than anticipated. The experimental evidence to date does not show random mutation/variation as a driving mechanism that leads to the formation new species. That is now fairly clear. What variation that does occur does so within species. The Darwinian hypoth...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

This is what I wrote on June 25 Page 2 of this thread. by jevg » Fri Jun 25, 2010 10:16 am To avoid any further misunderstandings Let me firstly explain my current understanding. Evolution is a fact. I don’t think anyone seriously argues that point. The question that needs to be properly answered th...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

So apart from the rhetoric on the periphery of this question We are agreed, random mutations and natural selection can make an organism fitter and larger (bacteria in this case) and more adaptive in an existing environment that in more general parlance is referred to as micro evolution. So lets retu...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

Geokinkladze I will try to deal with the issues you raised that are connected to this experiment. The LTEE experiment is named Historical Contingency and Evolution of key innovation in an experimental population of Escherichia coli. I introduced this paper to the forum in my very first post with th...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

Geokinkladze Thank you for your comments. As we can now concentrate with questions that deal directly with the question in this thread, I will be very happy to deal with your questions and indeed any others. I have not ignored responding to serious and rational questions in the past and will respond...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

This discussion is sadly beginning to degenerate to the level of insults and that is regrettable. I am clearly causing you some distress and I have no wish to do that. This thread was initiated by a simple question. I have been reading about evolution recently in an attempt to understand it. My ques...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

Origin of species – Chapter 6 Difficulties on Theory m Darwin argues some of the difficulties experienced by his hypothesis. In this case the lack of transition fossils. “These difficulties and objections may be classed under the following heads:-Firstly, why, if species have descended from other s...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

JackBean jevg: Can you say in ONE sentence, WHAT is your point? Because you're writing such long posts, I'm all tired about reading that (and apparently I'm not the only one) and it actually seems, that you agree with canalon... My point in this regard is simply this. Random mutations do not cause ...
