Darwinsbulldog wrote:Why do you use the term "Darwinian Evolution"? Why not biological evolution [BE], chemical evolutionCE, cosmological evolution[CosE]? I am confused as to your intended meaning for these things.

For example, Darwin had no idea about the mechanism of inheritance, so he would not have known about genetic drift. Genetic drift can change gene frequencies, and hence influence evolution of the genome. Darwin was only aware of Natural selection, sexual selection and palaeo-biographical factors, not genetics. And in any case BE, CE, and CosE are different and have different drivers.


Brilliant. Yes sir you have it, well put..

Key for the 'new' broad 'Science' perspective of 'evolution' to hold water, the movement of 'selection' and its chronological emergence must be outlined.

Perhaps you would like to comment on the proposal that the laws of physics = the first type of 'selection'.

Alone 'Primal selection' can be easily quashed, one must bear in mind that NS = Unconscious sub-conscious selection, and accept that PS = Non-conscious selection.

NS being Unconscious/subconscious selection = a SCIENCE observation.

The movement from the 'non-conscious' to the 'subconscious' to the 'conscious' = a SCIENCE observation.
