"Evolution is the promotion of good mutations. Obviously if a bad mutation occurs, the species won't be able to create many offspring. Therefore the mutation doesn't survive."

That's the whole point of my last post. The Hox gene mutations are always harmful, or have no beneficial qualities. Therefore they would not be helpful the evolution. How would drastic mutations, which are harmful, help the organism?

You completly ignored this question. I thought you might. Please answer it this time.

"One more thing. I really liked your article. In fact, here is a quote from it:

"Events such as the Cambrian explosion (some 570 million to 500 million years ago) where a huge number of very different organisms arose in a brief window of time would seem to argue that the long and slow accumulation of small changes couldn't explain the rapid diversification of bodies in that there just isn't enough time."

That supports my point. Now, either you believe both this quote and the other information, or you believe neither. You can't pick and chose. So, do you believe the quote I just used? KC2GWX 73's"
