S'okay ... you don't have to try and explain "stasis and the lack of transition" ... the concept you present is self-explaining ...I think I'd rather be categorically wrong and challenge the status quo then to not try to find the reason natural selection doesn't fit the data. I'm not talking about individual mutations. I am talking about mass mutations (all at or about the same time) within the species that led to a successful speciation. Like I said before the stasis and the lack of transition is what I am trying to explain. So those fossil records where there was no transition would be the examples of speciation from mass mutations. Do I have a specific example? No. I didn't think I needed one. Stasis is proof that natural selection did not lead to speciation. Lack of transition can only be negated by finding transitions. What examples should I use to confirm or refute this?
Do I have a specific example? No. I didn't think I needed one.
In science, observations are paramount ... if your theory doesn't explain anything we can observe, then it's not science, it's philosophy ... I've given you whales as an example of slow, incremental changes that occurred over tens of millions of years ... each individual mutation in an individual that increases reproduction will spread throughout the gene pool ... this is only a long process in human terms, a scant 200,000 years isn't enough time to notice changes, only 6,000 years to document these changes in writing ...
If you don't have a specific example, then we have nothing scientific to discuss ... a million cosmic ray particles all striking the exact same bond in a species' DNA within this "short" period of time is improbable in the extreme ...
