infamous Posted August 25, 2005 Report Share Posted August 25, 2005 For all you evolution buffs, this subject is one that I personally have little expertise. I have never-the-less had an interest in this subject for some time and consequently I have many unanswered questions regarding the overall mechanism. I do believe in natural selection and this thread is not intended to deal with counter arguments with which to attack evolution. If you post arguments here attacking evolution, you will be asked to refrain from doing so. This thread is to deal strictly with the contributing factors that define the mechanism we refer to as evolution. With this hopefully understood, I would like to ask those here at Hypography interested in evolution to give their interpretation for how the following factors contribute to evolution. #1............Entropy#2............Complexity#3............Equilibrium#4............The Life force itself#5............Gravity Correct me if I'm wrong, and that may be highly likely because as I have already said, I'm no authourity on Evolution. Of these 5 factors that I have listed, only The Life force itself and Gravity seem to struggle against Entropy. I'm aware that even Life itself while trying to organize will in the final analysis contribute to the overall value of Entropy. But the Struggle it seeks is in opposition to the direction of Entropy. Gravity on the other hand congregates and orders system so I therefore believe it to be the only force in total opposition to Entropy. Your probably asking yourself, what does this have to do with Evolution. And this is also my question to the rest of you folks. Because life struggles against Entropy, Evolution is playing a role in the effectiveness of this struggle. Complexity and Equilibrium are also part of the equation. My question is: How do all these factors tie together when we try to understand the Evolutionary process? Fishteacher73 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
