Re: Do you want to debate something?
I would hope this debate goes further but honestly I dont have the time, which is why I wanted to sit back and read what both of you had to say.
Obviously, I think your going to try and est. microevolution as a mechanism for the occurence of macroevolution.
I wish I new what your full position is - like:
From what did microeveloution begin and how did it arrive. If you want to use microevolution as a means of macroevolution; what is the foundation of microevolution?
Do you hold to a common ancestor of all life?
How do you define species? - I ask not to quibble about another word but that term is really arbitrary in that it does not reflect nature adequately - seeing that hybridyzation occures among different species and even above that category. The range of micreoevolution is not known unless we have absolutely est. the range of what is a species, as well as the totality of the different genomes. Also, even if microevolution can increase genetic info that info is of a certain type and will be constrained by those genomes and the category to which they belong. Hence, your not going to get the info for a "wing" if the genome never had any type of wing to begin with and if the genome had info for a wing the info increase would code for another type of wing - a wing that needed more information, but that would fall within the catergory of genomes that are allowed to interact with each other - where that line is we have yet to establish. And I dont think any amount of microevolution will cross that boundary.
I do not say these things as a rebutal nor to furhter the debate - I honestly do not have the time or the effort to engage in it.
Sorry, I do not quite understand where you are coming from. Just wanted to know.
I will read your material and links - I am enjoying what I am able to get to - Hope some will cont. the deabte though.
Thanks for your replies, and best wishes to you and your family at this time.
