- how many mutations does it take before one mutation can be reproduced?
- And is it by that passing on - by that definition alone - called fit. Need it even be helpful?
It doesn't seem to matter to evolutionary theory. I suspect a large majority of mutations are easily passed on. Isn't it possible to find imperfections of every conceivable kind passed on to future generations which could eventually cause that species' extinction, and yet for a hundred generations it may have no effect whatsoever? Of course this happens, and it happens all the time. But evolutionists still think success is defined by reproduction. And this success makes the fittest out of anything. There is another possible way to make mutations that are more germane to the matter. That way is the directing of genetic code by the individual of the species on himself by way of an unconscious mechanism set in motion by a conscious appraisal.
Think of the chameleon as a superficial form of that idea, or the human face and how our emotions are expressed exactly by muscles we don't consciously control or understand. In all kinds of ways an individual being cannot nor should not operate every aspect of his own body. Just think of the sports figure in a slump. He is usually thinking too much. When he relaxes and forgets about his tasks his skills improve. So there are things out of everyone's conscious control that are better off that way.
Now there is African cichlid fish which changes genetically and changes its form significantly when it consciously recognizes a change in its political situation. The unconscious abilities to morph superficially and genetically means natural selection and human engineering are not the only ways to evolve. Even though this case does not involve reproduction there is no reason why it may not indicate a possible method. The additional factor of transposons or jumping genes shows that mid-life genetic mutation is common with up to forty-five percent of the human genome made up of them.
It may happen that a life form, not all life perhaps, can signal to it's own DNA to change part of its makeup. Then when reproduction does occur whether by cloning or by sexual reproduction or by the newly discover direct transferring of genetic material by Raffflesia micropylora Meijer , the largest flower in the world, then the individual life can reproduce with some control, perhaps very marginal control, over what the next generation will turn out to be. These discoveries are only a few among many that evolutionists have failed to notice and have been happening for years. They have been overlooked and misinterpreted. They point to many ways that choice beyond artificial selection has an effect on change through descent. What they call evolution and I call simolution.
