Make this easy:

Provide a single instance of me saying evolution isn't a process.

I've alerted the mods to your incessant lies, so here's your opportunity to prove that you are not lying.

I've already provided a dozen instances proving you wrong, proving that I have never said evolution isn't a process, proving that you keep writing this lie then ignoring when people challenge you on it.

So over to you: provide justification for your claim about my position from this thread, or acknowledge that it's a fucking lie.

By what mechanism change, by what mechanism the unfolding?

If it has a mechanism then it can be described as a process.

An exploded view of evolution mine. A wheel within a wheel train of thinking.

Did the 'theory of process' unfold in the mind of Charles Darwin, did his 'theory of process' change the world.

In each, unfold, change by The mechanism.

[quote="Darkchilde";p="905771"][quote="pfrankinstein";p="905745"][quote="Spearthrowers 2nd link";p="905745"]Stellar evolution is not biological evolution, even though they rather unfairly share the same word![/quote]

The word 'evolution' has a Darwinian unambiguous meaning in science, that = descent modification selection. To describe stellar change as evolution is wrong, slovenly imo, that is unless one See's Darwin's mechanism and a process.

Paul.[/quote]

Stellar evolution refers to the birth, life and death of a star. It has a definite meaning in astrophysics. A lot of astrophysics books are titled "stellar evolution".

The word evolution is not a word used exclusively in biology; evolution in general does not refer to the theory of evolution, but to anything that changes over time usually via specific processes.

The Oxford Dictionary has it as the theory of evolution as 1, and "the gradual development of something" as 2.

http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/evolution[/quote]


And 542

[quote="twistor59";p="905786"]True, physics uses the term "evolution" to mean any shit that changes with time. So for example, Newton's laws define the time evolution of classical systems from an initial state, Schroedinger's equation describes the time evolution of a quantum state from an initial value....

Evolution in the Darwinian sense has the extra ingredient of some mechanism for introducing variability and the ingredient of natural selection.[/quote]

Pretending it's one class of things to describe requires buying into the vacuity of your position, which is precisely what you're attempting and failing to argue.


[quote="pfrankinstein";p="2794901"]If it has a mechanism then it can be described as a process.[/quote]

That's not in your definition provided - no mention of 'mechanism' at all.

You keep talking about Darwin because you wish your idea had anything like the value his had. It doesn't. It's bananas or banal, depending.

And you're still here in a pseudoscience subforum of a small internet forum after having been booted from most science fora - not at all equivalent to Darwin's achievements, and only you seem perplexed by that. It's a direct result of you having no idea what you're talking about while being too arrogant to notice, and lying all the time about everything.

Frequently, I tell myself that I have nothing. 

Because I contend that nature was making selection before NS. sometimes wonder if Charles Darwin had charged himself with a different initial question than the one he asked.Instead of the origin of species, suppose he had asked himself a different question: "The origin of all the different planets in our solar system."

Do you think he would have proposed a mechanism and a type of selection? Only me who sees it?

Advanced theoretical evolution is not a subject. So I explain my theory to myself.

I'd be out of step with everyone else. In that regard, I'd be a misfit.

Biological evolution, yes.


[quote="pfrankinstein";p="2794905"]That is you answer a different question to the one asked.[/quote]

No, I answered what Biological evolution is because this is another one of your equivocations.

There's a distinction between evolution - change over time, and Biological evolution - it's a distinction you spent half this thread trying to contend isn't a distinction at all.

Ergo, you can't now claim that I am answering a different question, else you've also acknowledged that there's a distinction.

It's the usual with you.

Regardless, I also provided links showing that a) people have told you what evolution is since this thread's inception 12 years ago and you've continually ignored it and b) you used to argue just as confidently that the change of a star over time doesn't amount to evolution.

The reason your argument keeps changing is because you don't know what you're talking about and it's all an act.


[quote="pfrankinstein";p="2794905"]What is Evolution? Is a specific question. Precision is everything.[/quote]

It's been answered dozens of times in this thread, despite your tactic of repeatedly stonewalling anything that doesn't conform to your agenda.


[quote="pfrankinstein";p="2794905"]Science requires it,...[/quote]

This thread has already shown how little you know about science, so no declarative statements about science from you have any value to them at all.


[quote="pfrankinstein";p="2794905"]... else a gifted writer may propose fiction.[/quote]

Then you'll need to finally pull your finger out of your arse and show what this supposed fiction is, because you're all mouth and no trousers.


[quote="pfrankinstein";p="2794905"]We already have you answer. [/quote]

Greatest thinker since Darwin, can't even write a sentence a 6 year old would be expected to manage.

And straight back to the equivocation.

The origin of our solar system's planets is not analogous to evolution by natural selection.

Thus Darwin wouldn't have wondered that, because he wasn't clueless, and if he had, he'd have died unknown. In fact, the very discovery he made is precisely contrary to your contention - the way life diversifies requires an explanation that isn't necessary to describe the diversity of planets.

The leading protagernist (writer troll) refuses to get off first base. I am forced into the loop.

In many ways, I see the writer troll as useful. Because of him, I am forced to examine the core understanding of the phenomenon (evolution).

Because of him, I am forced to repeat myself. Repatician is a Victorian method of teaching that is still used today. The x-table is still taught that way.

The writer troll has already conceded that evolution is a process; now he treads water and actively ignores.

A very sad state of affairs.

Time travel to the past is theoretically possible. 

Imagine if time travel was possible today. You and I could go back to Down House; you could pull Charles Darwin's chain about genetics, and I could ask him about my theory of process.

And if it happens to be snowing on that particular day, We'd be quids in.

To test and retest, you would have to travel more than once.

Just saying.

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.

Paul.[/quote]Causality is neither a novel, controversial or disputed matter. Personally assigning it the weight and import of a scientific theory or law, and then claiming on the internet that your apprehension of causality represents an entirely fresh approach to understanding the universe and everything in it, is an exercise in elevating the trivial while placing yourself (literally) at the centre of all things.

On a related note: have you ever suffered a percussive head injury?

Again, everyone can return back to the first pages of this thread and see that's what you've done to everyone throughout.

You refuse to acknowledge or address any of the challenges to your contentions, yet still think you can just blag and bully them through. Reminder: no you fucking can't - your ideas are shit and the only way you continue promulgating them is a mixture of ignorance and arrogance.
