: : Trial and error. The only way you can figure out if you are doing the right thing is to make mistakes to gauge from or learn from. In a different context and scale, god, thru nature, uses evolution as the process for things to move along. Maybe there is another model created in another universe that uses a non-evolutionary process.

: : I think this death-drive is just another "drive" like sex/drive or life/drive, within the evolutionary process.

bzrd here: Studies have shown that there are no such thing as "vestigal organs" in the human body. For ex., the appendix has been shown to play a role in digestion as well as the immune system. I was watching the Discovery channel the other night, they showed these two pythons mating, the male had two spurs located on his body that the narrator catagorized as "vestigal legs" that were some sort of evolutionary artifact. He failed to mention, that if this were true, then it would represent a loss of information within the python genome. Conversely, in order for some ancestor of the python to sprout legs, one assumes it would be a gradualistic process that would entail many generations of pythons having partially formed "leglets". Where is the fossil evidence of partially formed legs, wings, eyes, ears etc.?
