What is evolution?!!

September 29th, 2008 · No Comments

The previous post illustrates the possible difficulty in getting the knack of seeing the eonic effect. After so much Darwinian conditioning we aren’t prepared for the shock of seeing that evolution is something different from what we thought it was. The confusion arises because we project backwards onto unseen times a set of generalizations, like natural selection, without documenting the short term intervals closely enough to really see how evolution happened. The only data set we have to do that, actually, is world history itself, and a careful study given some basic giveaway clues like the Axial Age that have been sitting around for over a century shows the resolution of many of the riddles that haunt evolutionary thinking.

But the eonic effect shows some very exotic evolutionary processes. The theories of civilizations from figures like Spengler and Toynbee are too clumsy. We have to think in terms of differential ‘time-slices’ of civilizations, and short intervals of relative transformation….Confer the text of WHEE!

Evolution at the level of fossils is relatively obvious, but evolutionary dynamics is not what you think it is, and once you realize that, then you realize that evolution is not what you think it is.
The debate over design vs Darwinism is false. Neither side has the real clue and end up bickering over their respective metaphysical positions.
