Ziplock, I think you have missed the point. Yes DNA can be changed very quickly due to it being damaged by external forces, but this wouldn't be
passed on to the next generation, would it? And the Ebner effect doesn't supposedly change the DNA anyway, just expression of the genes.
Any further thoughts ATS?
I'm really interested to hear from some proponents of standard evolutionary theory. Say, for arguments sake, in the past the ESF of the Earth was very
different to what it is now. Could a drastic change in ESF account for the vast changes in morphology, the "explosions" of new forms etc. And what
would that mean for evolution? Would it infer that selection isn't the driving force of changes in morphology, but actually external factors are?
Could an embryo be somewhat of a "blank slate" that can pick up external cues to know in which direction to grow to become the most suited organism
for that future environment?
