Yay! The Equations For Evolution Can't Be Made Into A Death Ray

Hi,
While awaiting the "lookup"...
Equations that accurately describe Natural Selection can continue to be developed and could clarify what may have been misunderstood by
some.
Mostly, they define limits on what can be forecast. In doing so, they might reveal
a few predictable trends, which will be
quite contingent upon input variables.
The equations are so limited because the number of variables are so immense in an ecology including inventive humans and driven by a variable Sun and chaos in Weather.

The human intent behind their use
can only go wrong to the extent that the equations are misunderstood.
If a person wants to cite equations to justify something unjustifiable, that citation will have to be inaccurate.
" The true equations, without having any particular intent or bias, will necessarily, by their comprehensive treatment of the true depth of the subject, illustrate the longterm fallacies of most short-sighted vanities of procreation and harsh methods of resource hoarding. This is not a visionary ideal but
a true reading of the giantness of evolution's issues in "Universe." The true equations will support happy notions that are actually quite logical: loving one another, being very interested in life's deep and wide questions, and working thoughtfully together to create a better world. Biology's widest equations can't make a death ray because the focus must be fairly diffuse to be acurate.
Blaah blaah,
Mike
