Eye, complex to simple, fallen angels…


Evolution-explains-everything-and-answers-to-all-philosophical-problems skeptics argue that some biological structures, like the brain or the eye, are simply too complex for natural selection to explain. Biologists have proposed various ways that so-called ‘irreducibly complex’ structures could emerge incrementally over time, bit by bit. But a new study proposes an alternative route.

Instead of starting from simpler precursors and becoming more intricate, some structures could have evolved from complex beginnings that gradually grew simpler – an idea authors Dan McShea and Wim Hordijk dub “complexity by subtraction”. Computer models and trends in skull evolution back them up, the researchers show in a study published this week in the journal Evolutionary Biology. [1]

??? What ???

How is THAT an answer to irreducibly complexity?!?

Sometimes we are so blinded by our prejudice that we cannot even see that what we say is actually AGAINST what we are trying to say…

I must say it once more time: Evolution is ONE mechanism. And it seems to be a scientifically sound mechanism. But it cannot explain EVERYTHING! And we must be irreducibly prejudiced not to understand that other mechanisms can also work in parallel…

And devolution could indeed be one of them.

Are we animals evolved into humans, or spiritual luminous beings encaged into a lesser body?

Look closely to the mirror. What do you see? Is it an elevated animal? Or a fallen angel?

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!
