Moderator on Duty
As I've barely participated in this thread, and not recently, I'll take over moderator responsibility.

Hi Bolder-dash,

This thread is for discussing Wright's ideas within the framework in which they were constructed. If you're more interested in challenging the framework than the ideas then please do it in a thread where it would be on topic. Proposing a new thread to discuss the definition of the modern synthesis over at Proposed New Topics would be a good idea because it doesn't look like it has had its own thread in quite a while.

Because of your long history of determination and persistence at being off-topic, there will be no further warnings. Administrative action will be the next step. Please, no replies to this message in this thread.

Edited by Admin, : Grammar.

Topic Reminder
The topic is Wright et al. on the Process of Mutation. Raising questions about the random nature of evolution is at least a prerequisite for discussing the topic, but now you're introducing Dobzhansky's views about evolution's role in a search for meaning and quoting Kimura about neutral theory.

From this point on I'd like any discussion to be related to the topic. If you'd like to discuss any of these other areas then please propose threads for them over at Proposed New Topics.

Re: Rapid change.
Hi Zi Ko,

When someone uses the same argument in thread after thread regardless of topic, thereby causing those threads to go off-topic, then we ask them to take that argument to its own thread and to stop introducing it in other threads. You already had a thread to discuss your ideas, Nature's innate intelligence. Does it exist?, but now you're trying to introduce them into other threads. These are the ones I've found so far:

You've already lost your posting privileges in the Human Origins and Evolution forum. If you continue discussing the ideas from your webpage in threads where it is not the designated topic then I will remove your posting permissions in the rest of the science forums. If you would like to continue working on the topic proposal you began (Did evolution evolve?) then let me know and I will reopen it.

You misspelled the url of your webpage, please do not correct it.

Edited by Admin, : Grammar.

Re: Rapid change.
Hi Zi Ko,

Moderators deal with specific situations as they arise. I can't answer your hypothetical, but you already have an answer regarding your insertion of your webpage and its hypothesis in thread after thread.

Re: Are there RANDOM MUTATIONS?

I think "respect to life preserving" is more appropriate, as wider and more representative term.Also it touches the issue at the core and makes it more difficult to defend.

We're not going to debate well established terminology.
