Understanding evolution, adaptation, and phenotype

The differential transmission of genes depends on the availability of nutrients. The metabolism of nutrients to species-specific pheromones enables natural selection.

A “new” view of evolution sans mutations

Is there a simpler “proof” that makes those who think that random mutations cause adaptive evolution appear even more ridiculous?

Darwin was wrong

this “blinkered view” explains nothing because nothing about the adaptive evolution of species from microbes to man makes sense except in the light of biology.

Non random adaptive evolution

Changes in food availability, food type, or the way you get food can trigger evolutionary mechanisms to deal with those changes. The result can be increased brain size and cognition, changes in locomotion and even social changes

Random mutations theory and pervasive mosaic evolution (the brain)

“random” mutations in the genome are not quite so random after all.

Random mutations theory and pervasive mosaic evolution (the body)

Natural Selection and Sexual Selection must concurrently occur, which makes them non-random processes not driven by random mutations.
