Viruses are highly variable, and mutate all the time. There’s no better thing to ask in nature to make such a discovery.
Nope, most of the time it’s simply reactive. Through epigenetics, members of an entire species can start exhibiting virtually the same changes at once, if they’re going through the same changes in diet/environment.
Reactive systems, are dealing with far better chances than just a search for “anything”. They’re sampling the problem, and adjusting to it.
Which is something we can see. We can see the epigenetic system, and watch it work. We know for a fact that the genome is embedded in it, and is meant to change when exposed to prolonged stress.
Nope, pre- and early humans were more primitive, and their brain space only grew larger, and became more complex overtime.
Overtime, we see animals grow new features, and become other animals.
And Ken? You can’t keep making bodies of practical science, just to protect your simplification here. Genetic testing, Geology, insect toxicology, the physics of radiation, etc.
These are are all things that work in our everyday lives, and work because Evolution, or the extreme age of the Earth is true. Yet you’re claiming they fail 100% of the time when they touch these topics?
It seems more likely, takes less assumption, for there simply to be things nature can do, that you weren’t aware of.
Epigenetics would seem to be chiefly among them. Horizontal gene transfer would appear to be another.
You’re not answering Ken;
When God knows everything, what need has he of Trial & Error or prototyping? That’s behavior more indicative of something that doesn’t quite know what it’s looking for.
Aliens would be a better answer, if not for the time scale involved.
