George: Video of Steve Jones explaining how evolution works by chance.

This is something he often incorporates in his lectures.
I attended one he gave in Leicester some years ago.

Very neat presentation, but note how long the engineers took by rational selection to get the right weird-looking nozzle. My previous entry, for which George's entry is a commentary, raises the issue of is there enough time for natural selection to work by chance. Obviously, I think not. I think Jones actually supports me. Natural selection by its process of waiting for what is presented by chance mutation, must be very time consuming
