Every one if those conditional statements are true. "...as is certainly the case." It doesn't matter a toss what you believe to be true, cannot, or will not understand. Reality shows us otherwise.

Come back when your arguments are worthy. Or when you actually have one.


Let me ask you this.

1. Can we evolve eyes on the backs of our heads if it was useful to our survival?
2. Could we grow feathered wings like angels if flight was useful to our survival?

I would hope you would say NO to both questions. Here's why: http://www.ufscar.br/~evolucao/popgen/ref12-5.pdf

The most obvious limit to natural selection is that suitable variation may not be available. This may be because certain phenotypes cannot be built, being ruled out either by physical law or by the properties of biological materials.


It isn't just that natural selection cannot promote traits that are not of immediate and sufficient benefit, the variations responsible for the traits may just not occur. Imagination and speculation have hard physical limits to overcome.
