Remi "boy" Cote
According to what I know (much less) about evolution, mutation, in the
view of today's theory, doesn't account for the variation mechanism
necessary for evolution. G G Simpson (tempo and mode in evolution),
Ernst Mayr, Theodosius Dobzhansky rather imply slow genetic drift than
complete random mutation.
I think that is what Bill P. imply when he talk about persistence of
the genome, but I want to tell my opinion about the 960207.0530 post
from Bill P.
If the first monocellular organism appear in an absolute gell, defined
as a place with no variation, a simple soup with absolute no variation
from one place of the soup to another. A perfect homogene thing.
Then organism wouldn't have evolve at all. Evolution is a way to adapt
to a changing environement. Does anybody agree with me even if you
know now that Remi is a BOY name.??
Fire was the only thing (according to me and Goudsblom and Ellias and
other people that I don't know of...) that could explain emergence
of civilisation. So the "adaptation" of man is not only "natural".
It as nothing to do with the evolution of other species. Man "desing"
himself, he is a sort of laboratory work as oppose to a "field experiment"
He design himself as he design wolf to be pomeranian, psillium to be wheat,
moose to be cow...
Of course it is difficult to falcifiate these affirmation. But I just
whant to reply or suggest an answer to Bill P:"Either we don't know what to
look for, or human evolution proceeds at a highly variable rate, or it has
stopped, or there is something about theprocess that we havn't yet
Remi "the Man" Cote, (would I get less personnal message now that you
guy know that I am not a lady no more?)
