On the Origin of Species

M87 Jet

Tadpoles change into frogs. As tadpole characteristics slowly disappear, they are replaced by frog features. Frogs and tadpoles are plainly two totally different animals, suited to very different habitats and with dissimilar diets, yet they share the same genome. Plainly a single genome is able to make more than one species. And similar changes occur elsewhere: with caterpillars/moths, grubs/flies and so on.

Could this process be the "origin of new species"? Its credentials look excellent:

This hypothesis does not suffer from the crippling faults of Darwinism which necessitates far-fetched explanations. For instance, such is the speed of the change, a matter of weeks, that the question of a fossil record does not arise, nor for a "missing link". Similarly, it does not rely on feeble contrivances such as "accidental genetic mutations" or "the survival of the fittest, none of which stands up to scrutiny.

At the root of the above theory lies the implication of genetic program branching, with an implied connection to the Fractal Nature depicted in Fractaluniverse.org.
