Tony: Sure, some variation within a species happens. Bigger heads, smaller feet, more hair, less hair, thicker bones, thinner bones, etc. But Within preprogrammed limits. A bird has always been a bird and will always be a bird. Not a cat or a dinosaur or a potato. It is based on Intelligent Design. My hypothesis does not need to resort to the tangled bush theory. The prototypes were designed and deployed and have continuously varied within predefined limits. The similarities in genetics between different species is entirely due to the fact that they are written in the same genetic programming language.


David: And carry the same basic information. Fits my point that all the needed information for life from bacteria to humans was present from he beginning.

I think it is premature to make that assumption. As a designer, that strikes me as intuitively wrong. You don't design the end and work your way back, usually, especially with more complex systems.

I personally expect that we will find that each phase of life on Earth had a purpose in preparing the earth for life as we know it. Sort of building the foundations, as it were. I think we see life springing up periodically and fully formed as the Earth itself was terraformed from its cooling molten state into the lush planet we know. by the life inhabiting it.

Earth is the alpha test, I think... Perhaps, the prototype. I suspect that is why we will find no life anywhere else in the universe. Now, you may or may not disagree with humans being a favored creation, but there can be no denying that by virtue of our reason alone, even if nothing else is considered, our capabilities far outstrip those of animals.

What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
