View Full Version : The Pattern of Life Evolution

It seems that there is a pattern to how life forms change on this planet. All species come from pre-existing species. When a species, or several, branch(es) off from a pre-existing species, there is something very fascinating that seems to occur. Perhaps it should even be elevated to the status of a law:

1) Mutations cause bifurcations, trifurcations, or N-furcations. Often splinter species die off, but sometimes the environment favors the daughter species over the parent species.

2) By subjective human standards, when life diversifies from a common ancestral node (as described by 1), one branch is accelerated and one retarded, in terms of complexity.

So there you have it: radiation from a common node, and differential evolutionary "progress" if you will (as judged by humans).

Think about it. The ancestral species to all plants and animals, almost certainly some crude one-celled creature, at some point split into at least two species. In terms of who is more successful, plants or animals, that is hard to judge, but in terms of complexity, it is clear that the animal branch wins, hands down. A similar conclusion can be reached in regard to later bifurcations (i.e. verebrates are more complex than invertebrates, mammals are more complex than reptiles, primates are more complex than other orders within mammalia, etc.)

That etcetera can be extrapolated all the way down to the level of human racial differences, unless you are a retarded pc judeo-multicult scientist like Stephen Gould, in which case biology only applies to non-human species and magically disappears in regard to us (which is kind of funny because creationists, whom he loathed, had the same attitude in regard to "humans versus animals," albeit with a different details). Africans have more in common with non-human primates than most non-African humans do. The former are demonstrably less complex in their behavior, culture, etc., AND they live in close physical proxiomity to our closest non-human ancestors. If this is not a smoking gun agaisnt the myth of racial equality, then there is no such thing as a smoking gun in a debate.

That's a really smart theory. I guess I've never thought of it like that - although it should be so blatently obvious.

The name Gould sounds every bit as jewish as the rest of the
-gold and -berg names out there floating around. Stephan is a pretty jewish name too by the way. Take Spielberg for example. x_p
