The Darwinistic selection principle is false, unless human beings were not included.

Darwin's selection principle means that successful living beings have more offspring than the unsuccessful living beings and live on, whereas unsuccessful living beings have less offspring than the successful living beings and die out. But in the case of the human beings this selection principle can be reversed: successful human beings have less offspring than the unsuccessful human beings and die out, whereas unsuccessful living beings have more offspring than the successful living beings and live on. The human culture/s allow/s to circumvent the Darwinistic selection principle.

Successful is meant as as in, successful in having offspring.

Lev was keen, but was for some reason trolling me quite vehemently along with all the others that then left.

Someone should compile a book from good posts on this forum.

Actually there is no "selection principle" in Darwin. Maybe fair to note.
The principle at work here is that of sexual selection, nothing else.

What Darwin disclosed is the results of sexual selection, namely evolution in terms of appearances.

Actually, this is false. Standard Darwinism asserts that no matter how we fuck, the environment always determines the winners. It’s not a theory that says how we fuck determines the environment.

A very simple example of Galapagos finches demonstrates that finches did not change the trees. The trees are still the same.

But I can point to an important event where Darwin may have changed lab results to suit his theory.

Ill have to recall that, but sadly, it caused the suicide of a famous Viennese botanist

There is a very impressive claim that we fuck to change genetic immediate alternation. The periphery optics of that hinges on what sexual attraction really is, the willful power of changing characteristics through dominance and the use of the compensatory power of sexual perception to overcome inferior semblances of underlying power motives.

Well genetics proves Darwin's main suggestion to be true. His moment of triumph is valid, the Beagle is the greatest ship of discovery in everlasting eternity. I think. All that happens on Enterprise is contingent upon it.

"The periphery optics of that hinges on what sexual attraction really is, the willful power of changing characteristics through dominance and the use of the compensatory power of sexual perception to overcome inferior semblances of underlying power motives."

Yes, violent interpretation. Beauty in the eye of Sauron.

Of course, the second suggestion, of a continuous progression from amoeba to man, is problematic. Elegant though.
Do you think man came from ape?
And if so from what did ape come to your knowledge?

In terms of which species humans most act like (and this is well known) it’s actually *drumroll* ants !!!!!

Apes act less like ants than humans do, even though apes are genetically our closest relatives!

We are too individualistic to be like ants who work together as a single collective to achieve a common goal
And other species like bees or wasps but we value our independence too much to be like these social insects

No one here actually read Origin of Species, eh?

I was waiting for someone to nuance my statements.

Anyone read Dawkins' The Selfish Gene? High quality work.
He argues that it is not the organism but the genes themselves which must be seen as the agent. So you have to look at individual survival and procreation and group survival at once, which changes the logics, and gives another way of looking at "fitness".

So, the group is its own primary environment.

I remember at your compound, taking a walk around it, studying this enormous ant trail, with very strong ants carrying whole flower petals by themselves. It was like 50 yards long at least. Beautiful.

I have read them both but I prefer the Dawkins because it is the more contemporary of the two
It is one of the truly seminal scientific books anyone remotely interested in science should read

well I mean, to get to the point where you are able to put something you wrote in a credible scientific publication, surely you've studied a good deal of the foundational work on the subject

whatever
i hate it when creds start getting thrown around

y'all can just go ahead and assume that i'm an idiot and you're better than me
to me it makes no difference
