Science : Poll: What is Evolution?

What is Evolution?

Based on recent conversations it seems like people are unclear on what evolution really is. I want to gauge who is who and how many really don't understand the concept.

Evolution is:
1. A genetic mutation that reduces genetic complexity

2. A change in gene frequencies in a population
0% 0 votes
3. A genetic mutation that increases genetic complexity

If you think it is more than one answer feel free to post below.

Re: What is Evolution?

Evolution isn't just about the mutation. It's nothing without the natural selection that thins the herd.

We need some of that around here. Damn place is crawling with defectives.

Re: What is Evolution?

It isn't about appearance and it isn't about outside factor thinning herds or any other such over simplified bullshit. It comes down to the molecular level. Period.

Re: What is Evolution?

The “period” is unnecessary.

Re: What is Evolution?

Oh dear me.

And you started this thread claiming that it's other people who don't get Evolution?

How embarrassing.

"Snag one?"

One of the best of many hilarious lines in this movie.

Groovy

Re: What is Evolution?

It's a great movie! I love this scene.

Re: What is Evolution?

LOL, I like that Movie as well.

Re: What is Evolution?

Why are you so hung up on genetic complexity?

He’s the scientist who created covid 19. He’s working on covid 21 and needs your help.

Re: What is Evolution?

Because…

Re: What is Evolution?

I think you are mixing up the complexity of an organism (which can be the result of evolution) and evolution itself. You are completely dismissing natural selection, gene flow, and genetic drift which work to increase or decrease the genetic variation caused by mutations or which already exists, which leads to a change in the gene frequencies of the population, which is evolution.

Re: What is Evolution?

It always comes down to the individual genetic code. Just because individuals are unique does not mean one is more evolved.

It's 90% #2, 10% #3.

Re: What is Evolution?

Good. I was hoping some damn fool would pick #2. I wanted to blast some poor oblivious idiot. I'd like to thank you in advance for acting as the whipping boy for my days aggression.


You simple racist bastard! Are you seriously too fucking stupid to realize that option 2 is literally the same argument that groups like the KKK use to justify their claims of superiority? That somehow genetic diversity among individuals of the SAME SPECIES somehow equals evolution? Be it a black man & a white man or a great dane & a chihuahua it is not evolution you stupid prick!



Once again, thanks for stepping on that land mine.

Re: What is Evolution?

Good morning, mon ami!

Hark! Harold the angel sings.

Re: What is Evolution?

How are you this morning? 😊

Re: What is Evolution?

Tired! Mr. Jacky just left for work, and I miss him already. How's your day so far?

Hark! Harold the angel sings.

Re: What is Evolution?

Im just trying to ride out the last half of this gy shift.What a long night.

Harold,the singing angel harks.

Re: What is Evolution?

When does it end? Hope you get a good, long sleep in afterward.

Hark! Harold the angel sings.

Re: What is Evolution?

I get off at 8am ,I hope I sleep good too, it's pretty sunny during the day ,so it makes it harder to sleep.Any plans for the day?

Harold,the singing angel harks.

Re: What is Evolution?

Almost there! You're basically out the door already.

I understand that completely. I can never sleep during the day unless I'm in a room with blackout curtains covering the window(s).

No plans for the day, other than to perhaps inflate the kiddie pool for the dogs. We're going out for a picnic with friends tomorrow, though.

What about you? Any plans for the day/weekend at large?

Re: What is Evolution?

Pretty much work and sleep this weekend and some yard clean up for my mom.I hope that you enjoy your day K 😃👍

Re: What is Evolution?

You're a good son. Enjoy your nap, M!
