Substitute genes or chip for seed and there is no difference in its meaning from today's science. To me this is 100% a vindicated scientific description, al beit stated in ancient terms, and the first recording of a depiction away from the occultism of ancient times.
So my supposition that you are trying to lump genes, chromosomes and so on and so forth in the word 'seed' so it fits in with your bible was correct.
We do not look to temperatures and windflow to establish a life form.
But we do know for sure that crocodile sex is not down to the 'seed'.
Crocodile embryos do not have sex chromosomes, and unlike humans sex is not determined genetically. Sex is determined by temperature,....
I say this genetic configuration is better described as a code of a directive program, which contains all the data required in determining the offspring, to the extent it leaves no margin of play for any other factors as impacting.
Any other factors. That would include temperature.
Can't be put any clearer than that.
You say it is the 'seed' alone; but a quick check of reality and you are shown to be very wrong.
I think that a quote from your wiki link is infromative, here:
According to the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs Population Division, the single universal factor affecting fertility rate decline is mortality decline, regardless of race, religion or political context.
But tenuous was probably a strong word. However, I can't not hear the voice of one of my professors at uni drumming into my head that correlation is not causation.
It's also important to remember that low IQ people having loads of kids does not mean that those kids are low IQ.
My dad's and absolute duffer about anything other than horses and I'm reasonably bright. I know that anecdotes are not data points but it is an important point.
And we must not forget cultural issues: Dr Bill the practicing Chatholic is going to have how many children?
I'm certainly not saying that I.Q. is not correlated with low birth rate: but we cannot infer causation.
To the topic at hand, would you say that humans are then doomed to evolve into lower and lower IQ types a la the film 'Idiocracy' because of the correlation of low IQ and low birth rate?
If the correlation were positive, then we would probably see IQs rise higher than the current average until a new steady state was reached.
Take a look at the Flynn Effect. I would link it for you but I'm on my iPhone and it's a bugger cut n pasting. Pay particular attention to the lack of the effect on developed countries: i.e. Reaching a steady state.
