Progress, you mean like having chlorophyll in our skin and being able to make our own food?
Yeah right, what if it just happens to include the right million pairs?
That is an unsupported assertion. Can you show why? Really?
Or just assert that it must be true. You do know that the error rate is already high don't you?
Assert away, you sure don't need evidence.
Funny, you just ignored my point which is that variation in expression of traits is enough to do it, you don't need the mutations at all.
Here I will bold it for you:
You don't need mutations, variation in the expression of traits is sufficient!
And what don't you like about selection as a mechanism?
Say that you have a population where each individual has an average number of N ratio of children that live to be reproductive and then you have a reproductive benefit where B is the number of extra children that will survive to reproduce.
So after one generation we have Pop. 1 P(1)=N2
so we have general case where in Pop 910 where for a succesive generation S the
But for Pop.2 P(2)=N(N+B) P(2)=N(N2
Now I did not do the iterative notation correctly but the idea is to see that for each succesive generation in Pop. 2 you will have the extra factor of the B addition but you will also have the exponential growth of the prior B successors, which will lead to an increase of Pop. 2 over Pop.1
