The Fool: this is a little quiz for those you understand the theory of evolution well enough(atleast a university course on evolution)

1. What are some examples in our time which are examples of evolution?

2. what are some unanswered problems in evolution?

4.
A. Now if Animals are shaped/organized via enviromental selection. Does that mean that we are designed by the enviroment? If this is true it would mean that every thing in nature was a random happening?

B. On the other hand we speak in terms of life evolving, forward, and adapting to the enviroment, where claws, on a Crab serve a Function for grabing things and cliping enemies. For as humans we would say that we are superior because our brain enables use to adapt to much more situations. We would say its serves a functions.

What is important to notice is that these are two types of directions taken, A the enviroment is designing us. And in B life is making the apropriate adaptations to Survive.,,,

A. it A is true are we warrented to talk about, functions? for how does meaning less changes in the enviroment, lead us to think in terms of functions if they are all accedental happenings?

B, According to B live is getting more and more orginized, and now we are shaping the enviroment?

Have evolutionary scientist been making illogical moves..
For to say something serves a Function, is the same as saying it serves a PURPOSE!

"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

EDIT 1.0
The Fool: this is a little quiz for those you understand the theory of evolution well enough(atleast a university course on evolution)

1. What are some examples in our time which are examples of evolution?

2. What are some unanswered problems in evolution?

4.
A. Now if Animals are shaped/organized via environmental selection. Does that mean that we are designed by the environment?
This explanation, infers that that life is accidental or random.

B. On the other hand we speak in terms of life evolving, and adapting to the environment, where claws, on a Crab serve a function possible for grabbing and snipping enemies.
As for humans we explain ourselves as superior because or brain enables us to adapt to much more situations. Thus the brain serves a function in increasing our change of survival.

What is important to notice is that these are two types of directions taken, A the environment is designing us. And in B life is making the appropriate adaptations too the environment in order to Survive(acts with intention).

A. if A is true and every think is based from coincidence can we really talk about, functions? For how do we jump from meaningless changes in the environment, to thinking of functions if they are all accidental happenings?
B, According to B life is getting more and more organized, and now we are shaping the environment.(the opposite of the general theory)

Have evolutionary scientist been making illogical moves?

Think about is sense does it make to say something serves a function without a purpose.

If only there some underlying explanation for the responses you've gotten on this thread....

The Fool: I am sure there all for all things. But given me some postive critism would help.
