KOFH: In regard to what you propose, essential Directed Evolution, I would agree and submit evidence to that idea in support of such a factor at work today and for the last 7 million years at least.
Taq: So let's see that evidence.

After years of debate, the Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday declared that food from cloned animals and their progeny is safe to eat, clearing the way for milk and meat derived from genetic copies of prized dairy cows, steers and hogs to be sold at the grocery store.

Because clones are costly, it is their offspring that are most likely to be used for producing milk, hamburgers or pork chops, while the clones themselves are reserved for breeding.
“This is a huge milestone,” said Mark Walton, president of ViaGen, a leading livestock cloning company in Austin, Tex.
And even there the intelligence can be questioned.
1) Like with some of the people here, you mean/ Those who replace thinking with nonsense and ad homo ridicule when they stand correct in the light of Truth?
2) The Direction given to Evolution was inherent in the Natural Law of Life that made Survival the Prime Instinct.
3) What We see in all life forms is the tenacious instinctual drive to live, so often in the face of realities that cause almost insurmountable obstacles and even excruciating pain and suffering.
We see the lowest forms of life, like bacteria, suffer attacks from miracle drugs, but manage to mutate and survive in the face of attempts to kill them.
German Cockroaches (Germanica Blattella) will become resistant to insecticides after millions and millions of them have been exterminated in what seemed to a doom for that species.
This one Law indwelling all living things was God's Direct Evolution that intended for life to accompany His Reality as a partner and co-existing mirror that would eventually lead to a creature which could image His being and help Him maintain the relationship with Life forevermore.
Man HAS managed to form a mental IMAGE of "Father Nature" by understanding of His Laws and creation.
Gen. 1:26 And God, (Father Nature, Reality), said, Let us, (i.e., his Natural Laws, together, in pan-en-theistic expression of the Spirit of God: [Gen 1:2]), make man, (through the process of gradual evolution ending in the finished Adam i.e.; Jesus),... Let us ((i.e., his Natural Laws) make man, (as a reflection of Reality, in his mind, able, through Truth, to imminently reflect the "I am" of this existence: [John 14:6]), IN OUR IMAGE, (after the spirit of our orderly panentheistic organization): and let them, (men as the Dominant species on earth to this day), have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Many thanks for taking so much trouble to read my post and reply it. I am here in this forum to get connected with people like you who can shape my opinions and, if possible, suggest some clues to test them.
That is the correct attitude for people which ought be maintained all their life since one life time is not even close to time enough to understand what this experience we encounter after leaving our mother's womb is all about.
At birth, we suddenly become aware of an almighty force that is in constant contact with us through our seven major senses.
This Force responds to things we do, and it makes us respond back, too.
Arrogantly, in a short time, we become confident that we understand and can interact with this Reality we face every second of our life.
We find this less than difficult at first, because we have been programmed in our Unconscious memories, those built from experiences back through all the 22 links to the very first Adam to appear on Earth..
Our Unconscious mind already knows things about the environment we will be discovering consciously, and already knows how that environment, both natural and social, will meet us after the first smack on our bottom.
This Unconscious mind inside us will lead us to complement and participate with Almighty Reality, as long as we adapt, accept, and conform to his ways and Natural Laws.
What we call "instinct" is one of the ways this Uncoscious mind leads and guides us.
This basic spirit-like Truth, this Unconscious mind that is within us, has evolved through genetic encoding of these instinctual and learned phylogenetic experiences.
Our genes have stored away knowledge and memories from previous life experiences that took place many times, over thousands of years.
This Ancient of ancients inside us is a third eye watching and whispering to us from birth more loudly, but still in whispers, always with us.
We are in a personal relationship with the storehouse of Truth, for life and, really, after death, until we are born again.
Knowledge of the world and the reality we will encounter has been contained in the memory of this Unconscious partner inside our head, experiential, through the school of hard knocks.
That is why I call it The Truth.
The TRUTH has been stored genetically inside our individual Unconscious mind which is born again with every birth.
The clean slate of our Conscious mind is chalk and blackboard for our generation, and a record keeper of what experiences and behaviors our generation will have had.
The good that men do will be so remembered.
It will be added to these Unconscious memories, while the evil that men will have done will be interred with their bones towards the Hell of Extinction of their kind.
The failures and the successes will collect as a Directied Evolution will emerge for our whole species, one that holds the Truth as the light into the Way for our species to find LIFE eternal with this God of the Living, i.e.; the Father of all Nature, the ever unfolding Force behind the changing Reality of the next generations of our kind will encounter.
You just can't stop misrepresenting what the Bible says, can you?
Maybe you can better explain what the Bible is saying when it tellsus plain out that there willbe no more death, no pain, etc?
Revelation 21:4-5 And God, (blessing them with Total Phylogenetic Consciousness: [Carl Jung]), shall wipe away, (in their awakened Unconscious Mind: [Freudian Hypothesis]), all tears from their eyes, (for life is a genetically remember able, a continuum, we shall remember from one generation to the next living generation); and, (in genetic memories of prior existences held in our Unconscious Mind) there shall be no more death... (For we shall not all "sleep:" [1Co15:51], but total phylogenetic Consciousness will have evolved), neither sorrow... (For we, individually, are part of a living continuum of our own past[s], flowers upon our genetic vine), nor crying,.. (for we are happy in these revelations of reconstitution from our human gene pool), neither shall there be any more pain, (as men will have neurological control, a self-hypnotic ability to stop the nerve signals to the brain),... for the former things (in Modern Homo sapiens paradigm of the life experience) are passed away. And he, (the Christ, the ancient, phylogenetic, Collective Unconscious Mind in their own Kingdom within), that sat upon the throne (within the kingdom of the evolving Homoiousian sapiens' brain: [Luke 17:21]) said, Behold, (in this way, through evolution: [Gen 9:11-18]), I make all things (in human experience) new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true, (i.e.; words of Christ himself, who is the experiential presence of Truth in us, rational, the Unconscious mind), and (worthy of) faithful (belief).
The Direction given to Evolution was inherent in the Natural Law of Life that made Survival the Prime Instinct.
Certainly, you are welcome to believe that the natural laws that allow evolutionary development were designed. This, however, would be a matter of belief and not a conclusion reached through the methods of science. On the other hand, it has been argued that intelligent design in biological systems can, in principle, be detected (under certain conditions) through the methods of science. Thus, the endeavor to detect ID in the biological world can be a scientific one (unfortunately, the Discovery Institute seems a bit more obsessed with critiquing Darwinian theory instead of proposing an ID hypothesis), while your beliefs cannot be considered to be in the realm of science.
A very brief note concerning the phrase "directed evolution," for those interested: technically speaking, the phrase "directed evolution" generally refers to a method of designing proteins, and usually has nothing to do with the natural history of species and genomes.
