I've been looking for a practical use in applied science for the information that all life on earth evolved from a microbe...

Luckily for humanity no form of the earth sciences even claims that.

Maybe it's because you don't have a clue what science is? That's why.

dredge writes:

It seems to me that the whole Universal Common Ancestor thing is completely irrelevant and useless outside the realm of evolutionary theory.

That's what happens when you are ignorant enough to believe that Periods are layers despite having been corrected multiple times.

It's not a microbe. It's from a population of microbes. Plural.

I changed it. I humbly ask foregiveness for my mistake.

What the evolutionary ancestors of a trilobite? Algae? Bacteria?

He-he-he. None of the above. You really, really have to study even a bit of Biology.

This fact contradicts your Darwinist fantasy that a dog can eventually be bred into a non-dog

If a dog could eventually be bred into a non-dog it would completely falsify evolutionary theory as that is the opposite of what evolutionary theory predicts.

Is that so? Please do explain.

When a mommy and a poppy love each other very much….the stork doesn’t bring them a kitten.

The basics Dredge. Maybe you should wait till you’re older than 6 to be getting mommy to type your incoherent ramblings and paste it on this forum?

Dredge writes:

If a reptile could be bred into a bird, would that the be the opposite of what evolutionary theory predicts too?

Yip. Populations evolve. Individuals don’t.

The basics Dredge. Maybe you should wait till you’re older than 6 to be getting mommy to type your incoherent ramblings and paste it on this forum?

Dredge writes:

How about a single-cell organism being bred into a double-cell organism?

Where does evolutionary theory predict that? Why would a single cell organism evolve into a double-cell organism? Populations evolve. Individuals don’t. Even after that; where does evolutionary theory predict that populations of unicellular organisms must evolve into double-cell organisms?

The basics Dredge. Maybe you should wait till you’re older than 6 to be getting mommy to type your incoherent ramblings and paste it on this forum?

In other words, you can't provide a practical use in applied science for the Darwinian explanation for the fossil record.

I can. The very idea of it pisses creationists off. That's more than enough practical use for me!

I'm not too sure what you mean. The world of science has moved on since 1859. After all, a "Darwinian explanation" means natural selection.

In evolutionary theory, we mean things like natural selection, genetic variation, gene flow, gene capture, sexual selection, genetic drift, genetic hitchiking, neutral theory, etc.

So, what are you asking?

You don't understand the Darwinian theories of common descent and descent with modification?
If not, try neo-Darwinian theory.

Does your idea of it involve neutral theory?
