Random mutations: nothing adaptive in 3 billion years

This is an open access article. Any advocate of adaptive evolution via random mutations can attempt to find evidence that I could not find by scanning it.

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?

Epigenetics and metabolism converge with pheromone production

Shall we attribute to him the inability to see that metabolism and epigenetics converge with food odors and the metabolism of nutrient chemicals to pheromones that act on precisely the same molecular mechanisms of adaptive evolution found in species from microbes to man?

A mathematical model of phenotypic cause, effects on genes, and affects on behavior

the only thing wrong with mathematical models of cause and effect is that they attribute indirect genetic effects, direct genetic effects, and affects on behavior to something unknown

A key mutational event? That’s not very likely.

theorists argue that the 4.5 million interactive DNA switches in the human genome evolved via random mutations.

Do molecular mechanisms vary across species?

Do the molecular mechanisms vary from those known to be required for adaptive evolution of the neurogenic and socio-cognitive niches…
