You seemed to have missed Percy's explanation of how to use quotes.
Copy and paste this into your previous post:

[qs=taq]Perhaps you could explain how it is lacking? Are you saying that fitness is not a factor in the propagation of a genome?[/qs]
I couldn't begin to say what fitness is, nor its scope. Is the scope of fitness the continuance of the species, or individuals with greater number of offspring? The two aren't the same.

Edited by Panda, : clarity

Still you seem unable to grasp simple formatting.

Replace your quoted text with:
[qs=taq] Perhaps you could explain how it is lacking? Are you saying that fitness is not a factor in the propagation of a genome? [/qs]

Edited by Panda, : No reason given.

Re: beneficial mutations
Taq writes:

So how can this be an engineered response when 99.9999998% of the bacteria fail to produce the correct mutation?


Wouldn't that be a worse design decision than putting spare-tyres in only 0.0000002% of cars?

Always remember: QUIDQUID LATINE DICTUM SIT ALTUM VIDITUR

Science flies you into space; religion flies you into buildings.

It is a matter of belief.I believe there is, you believe there is not, becouse there isn't any evidence of it.


Belief - acceptance without evidence - is not science.

I believe that aliens kidnap you (yes, you) when you are asleep and perform experiments on you.
It is a matter of belief.I believe they do; you believe they don't because there isn't any evidence of it.


If I were you
And I wish that I were you
All the things I'd do
To make myself turn blue
