You all think microevolution just keeps going but that is impossible. That is why I'm saying all you've got to get from species to species is trial and error. It's the only possibility. You can call it crap all you want. Obviously that makes yhou feel better but it doesn't change the fact that you can't get from one species to another any other way, and there's no way to predict that you're going to get any kind of useful mutations.. The genetic stuff is not built into the genome, that's only for the variations within the species. I'll come back to this again, can't get through it all now
As long as you speak in abstract generalizations your fantasies are meaningless.
Selection can't do anything, you have to have the stuff to select and that's where all you've got is trial and error.
Selection selects, that has an effect. Trial and error plus selection is staggeringly powerful.
