Paul Almond wrote: I have a question, pfrankinstein, and I think it is important to this discussion. Could you say exactly what you regard the word "evolution" as meaning, in the context in which it is being used by you, here?

The word "evolution" is Victorian slang for what Charles Darwin himself preferred to refer to as "descent with modification by means of Natural selection". It is Darwin's meaning of the word "evolution" that i use.
