autonomy v. automaticity (Evolution)

Tony: Well, in the creation account, it says he created certain groups, but does not indicate that every variation we know today was created initially. It also talks about being created according to a "kind". That would be a prototype from which future variants could develop from the base model.

dhw: I commented on this when you raised it on 4 March, but perhaps you missed it:

Tony: Why not from prototypes? From a design standpoint, prototypes make more sense and are more in agreement with the fossil record.

dhw: I don’t have a problem with that. Nor did Darwin, who talks of life “having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or one.” My own hypothesis of cellular intelligence would certainly not preclude the design of prototypes, with different cell communities coming up with different “patterns” (David’s term) that can subsequently be re-used with variations.

I've commented today with an article on spider coloration in Hawaii.
