It's banal, it's not 'proposed' and never was 'proposed' as being a process, and it's not defined as 'process'.

You're not getting anywhere, Paul.


You know as well as everybody else that Charles Darwin hardly ever used the single word "evolution" to refer to his most famous work. He referenced evolution by way of its mechanism: descent with modification.

process1
/ˈprəʊsɛs/
See definitions in:
All
Computing
Printing
Law
Biology
noun
1.
a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end.
.....
Because "descent with modification" counts as an action that indicates movement to an end, that being speciation, it is and can rationally be described as a "process."


"The theory of evolution" becomes "the theory of process" by Darwin's preference.


No clever word play on my part. The meme "Victorian slang evolution" morphed into "modern-day slang biology." Observed.


The mass kruger is promoted by those who should know better. 


What is evolution? According to Charles Darwin, evolution is a process. My rational logic is concise and based on facts.

Plus, as already explained to the guy unable to process anything a millimetre past his nose - that's a definition of process which categorically is untrue with respect to evolution, but given the combination of ignorance and bullshitting, he continues to show why he's still ranting bollocks at people who think his ideas are ignorant shite.

Teleology (from τέλος, telos, 'end,' 'aim,' or 'goal,' and λόγος, logos, 'explanation' or 'reason')[1] or finality[2][3] is a reason or an explanation for something which serves as a function of its end, its purpose, or its goal, as opposed to something which serves as a function of its cause.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theistic_evolution

Theistic evolution (also known as theistic evolutionism or God-guided evolution) is a theological view that God creates through laws of nature.

Francis Collins describes theistic evolution as the position that "evolution is real, but that it was set in motion by God",[4] and characterizes it as accepting "that evolution occurred as biologists describe it, but under the direction of God".[5] He lists six general premises on which different versions of theistic evolution typically rest. They include:[6]

1) the prevailing cosmological model, with the universe coming into being about 13.8 billion years ago;
2) the fine-tuned universe;
3) evolution and natural selection;
4) No special supernatural intervention is involved once evolution got under way;
5) Humans are a result of these evolutionary processes; and
6) Despite all these, humans are unique. The concern for the Moral Law (the knowledge of right and wrong) and the continuous search for God among all human cultures defy evolutionary explanations and point to our spiritual nature.

And what of your confidence, sir?

Science is reliant on fact-based observation. 

As an intelligent man (?) you should welcome my testing of your core understanding.

You have already conceded the point I have raised; everybody here is a witness.

Again... What of your level of confidence? only achievable by ignoring facts?

You promote the use of slang. Your fiction is exposed and quashed by the Darwinian fact. Evololution = Process.

See how much fun you can have with a 'process' understanding.

You can ask the questions of origin and advancement. And chart the movement of the same.

Before you can define a phenomenon, best be sure you have all the relevent related pieces.

Quite frankly sir, I believe you are not playing with a full deck.

Publicly, in this little forum. Go for it fall guy.

Tell me again how NS is a metaphor.



See, again you're just showing yourself as being completely unable to engage in any level of honesty.

For example, I've written explaining why NS is a metaphor dozens of times, and each time you've tossed out your usual distractions.

Anyone can type in 'metaphor' and look back through the numerous instances of me attempting to provide you with some nuance and education, but you aggressively fending off ever learning anything because of your swollen ego.

Spearthrower wrote:Regardless, one of the many reasons why what Darwin did or didn't say is irrelevant to science (not History) is that Darwin's understanding of E&NS, while vital as a discovery, is extremely impoverished comparative to the understanding today. Darwin spoke in metaphor because of the limitations of his understanding - in many ways, there's a natural progression in discovery that starts with metaphor but becomes nomenclature as deeper understanding is discovered. Even nomenclature is quasi-metaphorical, but that's way beyond your ability do discuss. Despite Darwin publishing his idea, we no longer use any of the language he used because it is not clear enough for modern usage, it just doesn't have the resolution necessary to do any work today. Even were your witterings legible, the best they'd ever be is insufficiently specific to have any import on the subject. Go learn stuff, Paul: stuff good.

Spearthrower wrote:Speciation wasn't actually a thing conceived of before, Darwin. That's kind of the entire point of why Darwin is remembered. For most of human history, species were seen as fixed quantities created as is.

So he didn't answer the speciation question by observing speciation, as that's just jumbled nonsense the kind of which indicates what the true state of your grasp of the topic is, but rather Darwin saw different traits in distributed populations that seemed suited - adapted to local environments, and hypothesized that not only did this come about by natural selection, but that this principle of adaptations accruing over generations could thereby provide, through extension, a naturalist account of the diversity of life.

At any point, you are perfectly free to stop pretending you know what Darwin wrote - the only way is up in this respect - not least because there is no value to you in pretending anyway - what some historical figure said about it is irrelevant, Paul. Darwin did not use the words you keep trying to put in his mouth, and you don't bolster your own ideas by repeatedly name-dropping him. What Darwin did and what you've done are not in the slightest bit analogous.

Do you consider your very existence, your being here, the result of an uninterrupted chain of "cause and effect" from bang to now?

By casting a line back to the big bang, you can see that the line passes through three distinct chapters.

The chapters are defined by the majority of their forms. I take "type" into account. both types of environment and material.

By such means, the three chapters are divided. Interestingly, the chapters are totally different, so much so that some may never grasp that they are related.

I'd have it that way. Charles Darwin noticed total differences in species. Unperturbed, he made the connection—the relation—by means of a common ancestor.

With my "one bang, one process" theory, I count the big bang as a type of ultimate common ancestor.

For me, the process of evolution began when time started. It is my standard model. Other flavours are available.

Keep trying; you'll get there one day.


While you've got that dictionary out: look up 'equivocation'.

In logic, equivocation ("calling two different things by the same name") is an informal fallacy resulting from the use of a particular word/expression in multiple senses within an argument.

It is a type of ambiguity that stems from a phrase having two or more distinct meanings, not from the grammar or structure of the sentence.


So says the man who who treats NS as a metophor when in fact it is a calculation made by nature.

Have you ever suspected that nature was making selections before the earth formed and life emerged?

We have no name for that pre-type of selection before Darwinian natural selection.

Is the Big Bang timeline the largest example of descent with modification by means of primal selection?

https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictio ... sh/process

B2
a series of actions that you take in order to achieve a result:

B2
a series of changes that happen naturally:



As with the equivocation of the term 'evolution', so we once again see your intellectual dishonesty as you hop between definitions whenever you feel like - of course, this affects no one but you, showing that you are incapable either of understanding, or are intentionally blagging.

Over millions of years, the composition of a star changes. Seen across a period of time, this can be talked about in terms of a process, in terms of evolution; i.e. a series of changes that happened.

But not as a 'series of actions that you can take to achieve a result' -

no one's taking any actions
no actors are involved
no result is intended
nothing is achieved


When you argue that evolution is a process, and that a process is 'a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end' then you can not be talking about evolution, whether that be biological, or stellar, or any other natural process, because none of these entail the agency and directionality you keep trying to sneak in.

It's all a big sham. You've not discovered something incredible about the world - at best you've befuddled yourself with words, but other people aren't confused by homonyms.

You won't address this, underscoring the lie you repeatedly tell that no one counters your claims while it's actually you who can't respond to substantive criticism.

I bring evidence, etymology of the word. Victorian slang corrected by the innovator. Only to be reinvented by you as another type of slang for a different subject.. If we are taking about "evolution , then we are talking about a process.

You are talking utter shite that you seem to think convinces someone you know what you're talking about.

In reality, I am not using any language in a strange way at all - I am using words exactly as they're used in the relevant fields of science, whereas your usage is incoherent or wrong.

And your repetitive lying is confusing you.

For example, you keep on wittering on about 'process' as if I've said evolution isn't a process, despite me actively challenging you dozens of times to provide a single instance of me saying otherwise.

What we definitely wouldn't do, Paul, is to say that a hairstyle evolves in a manner equivalent to that involved with natural selection, Paul, or pretend, Paul, that just because the word 'evolve' is used that it also has to mean that all aspects of the term used in Biology - shorthand for a process involving inheritance and differential survival statistically measured over generations of living organisms - also just get ignorantly transferred across as if anyone with half a brain, Paul, actually thinks that's logical, Paul.

So why are you lying about what I said TO ME?

Are you that egotistical that you think you can somehow oblige me to believe that I didn't say what I clearly did, but instead said something you keep lying about?

Put up or shut your lying trap, Paul. Provide a single instance of me denying that evolution is a process: OF COURSE IT"S A FUCKING PROCESS, you total dingbat! Evolution, being change over time, necessarily involves a process, i.e. a sequence of events over time... it's like arguing with a 3 year old.

I've shown so many instances of your lying now - it's time you start owning this. If you can't change your behavior, why do you expect others to change their response to you?

Same input - same output.

Repeat these baseless lies again about me, and I will reference these to the moderators - you more than deserve it, despite everyone here giving you ample chances to engage with some basic fucking honesty.

Or do you maintain that evolution = biological evolution. A different question to the one asked.

Go away you pathetic little liar.

You can't point to a single fact you've established because you are terminally incompetent and you lie repeatedly.

Call it what you want: it still amounts to vapid bullshit and hubris on your part, with a hearty side-serving lies.
