Re: Thank you Beretta
Evolution only takes place when an entirely new trait is introduced into the biosphere, [this is called, 'origins'] or when an old trait
is entirely extinguished from a taxon.[this is 'extinction']

Is their any reason why we should accept your made up definitions for what evolution is over, say, those of evolutionary biologists?

TTFN,

WK

Re: Time
The early embryonic similarities that supposedly demonstrate the common ancestry of the vertebrates turn out to be non-existant, while embryos of other phyla are even less similar.

So vertebrate embryos aren't similar, but embryos from other phyla are less similar? Doesn't that mean in fact that vertebrate embryos are more similar? Just making vacuous claims doesn't do anything, where is the counter evidence rebutting the mounds of embryonic developmental data showing conservation in developmental systems?

TTFN,

WK

Re: Icon Problems
The problem is that Wells - who is not a biologist - explains it wrong.

I'm in no way suggesting Wells is right about anything but he has been a practising developmental biologist, to the extent that he got a Ph.D. on a developmental topic. Admittedly he was steered into it by the Moonies and doesn't seem to have published any actual research since then but he did do relevant research at one time.

TTFN,

WK
