Evolution of the Theory of Evolution: 0


How much have we misunderstood the Evolution of Species, the notion of Biodiversity and Nature in general…

We believe that diversity in nature is automatically created via evolution.

But at the same time the UK government has announced that five species of invasive non-native aquatic plants are to be banned from sale in an effort to stop them from spreading in the island. [1] Does this mean that species have the natural tendency to “wander around”, thus reducing biodiversity? If invasive species were left to “conquer” England and take the place of other species already there, wouldn’t that result in reducing the “different number” of species after all? Doesn’t interaction for too long lead to the reduction of differences between the species mingling? If human intervention is required to maintain biodiversity, how can this be seen as an inherent characteristic of Nature?

Floating pennywort, one of the species to be banned, can grow up to 20cm per day

We believe that evolution is a slow gradual process.

But humans developed specific genes to help them survive in the cold in an “instant” (in cosmic scale) in Siberia. [2] A study shows how, over the more than 25,000 years that modern humans been lived in Siberia, various peoples have adapted to the region’s cold weather and meaty food sources through selection on multiple genes that control several biological mechanisms.

We believe that cats are different species from a lion. And we try to preserve lions from not being extinct.

But studies show that cats (yes, the “small” ones we have for pets) are one of the top threats to US wildlife, killing billions of animals each year. [3] We may be afraid of lions and not of cats, but as far as Nature is concerned, cats are the most feasom animal of those two “different” species… If cats are better adapted than lions, why should we try to maintain lions in existence? Who are we to interfere with Nature’s way of doing things?

Science must work with solid definitions and build its way up from solid foundations. The Theory of Evolution is for many years now based on some very specific axioms that not many biologists wish to review.

But they forget a basic principle of safeguarding against earthquakes: When the foundations move, the only solution for the building not to fall down is to make it flexible enough to move along…

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
