    Si I check out the Video Games section every day and today, this is what I saw. I nearly fell off my chair laughing. Do they honestly think that insulting gamers will make them buy their book? lmao.

    "DNA makes no mistakes"? What do you call mutations then?

    Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

    Yep, mutations are how differences in a species develop.

    1) Mutations sometimes lead to potentially useful adaptations.
    2) Natural selection weeds out the undesirable adaptations.
    3) Sexual reproduction mixes 2 sets of successful DNA to produce a new mixture that also contains mutations.
    4) Goto 1

    The [​IMG] wasn't meaning that I was actually unsure, just that you calling genetic mutations the engine of evolution doesn't mean that they're not mistakes, so...there was no point in writing it.

    OK, sorry. Nah they are only "mistakes" from a subjective point of view. Cancer, genetic diseases etc, the same mutation may lead one person to be immune to malaria and give the other sickle cell. Mutation the engine, natural selection the driver sound better?

    5) Learn to be entertained by your misery and you’ll never have a bad day. Whenever you feel bad about anything, even physical pain, step away from yourself, examine your present situation and be entertained by it. This is extremely powerful and will help you get over just about anything, especially feeling sorry for yourself.


    Very valid point imo
