    Hi Dace -

    Sorry, but no. The point of Darwin is that nothing remains the same,
    regardless of internal similarity, because the environment is a shifting
    sand that organisms either adapt to, or perish.

    Nothing whatsoever to do with mechanism, creation by external forces, or
    god-like necessities of primacy.

    The logic of evolution and its processes (not its mechanisms, although
    the word could be used), is that it is a conglomerate of algorithms- a
    long, tall, totem pole of organic stepping stones that get an organism to
    a certain point, but, woefully, often through circuitous and needless

    Evolution is not logical from a design viewpoint. It does not separate
    the wheat from the chaff.

    Just ask any god.

    There's one knocking at your front door.
