Re: beneficial mutations
So you accept organisms are able to change their DNA expression patterns in responce to the environment. But where this interaction stops?

At the chemistry level...

nature intelligence, so evident around us

What are you talking about? Intelligence requires consciousness and nature ain't conscious.

If Percy and you really believe that random mutations exist, then you believe that man has been created by pure chance, becouse mutations is the critical factor in evolution.

But pure chance eliminates the non-random component of natural selection that is also important.
