I'm feeling antagonistic today so I'll bite, and just to pull the rug out from under you I won't even mention religion. The assertion that a species survives simply by achieving superiority through random mutation and social selection directly contradicts the fact that viruses, who mutate faster then most other organisms so make an ideal candidate to study, don't have the mental facilities to make those kind of social decisions on their own. Yet the individual species of viruses always seem to mutate toward an end that benefits their survival as a whole. Given that reproduction is an expensive process and everything lives with a finite amount of resources I think that r/K selection theory is out, so go ahead and explain that one.
I'm not a biologist so I don't have an answer to your antagonistic question. But it doesn't seem unreasonable to me that the evolutionary process could differ depending on many factors.
I didn't mention religion, in fact I specifically said I wouldn't so don't go off topic with blind assumptions. Also, I know that it doesn't explain anything I was asking you to explain that phenomenon. Please don't get upset that someone is questioning the beliefs you so blindly follow.
Here you are responding to a post I meant to direct to cppprogrammer297, sorry for not being specific who I was speaking to.
Holy shit. I just got back from work too. Luckily, every single creationist argument from the past 20 years I've already heard, and already been refuted by people much smarter than me; so I didn't miss much.
