Bacteria and camouflage?
I was in a rush when I wrote that.

I used camouflage in animals as an example of defense mechanism. The same concept applies to bacteria such as E. Coli when they become resistant to antibiotics or use citric acid as a carbon source

I am asking a real question. Calling me a liar so you don't have to answer is ok. Ill accept it as you don't know and I will wait for someone smarter than you to reply. I realize when it comes to this subject you are mentally the "poor cousin" thank you for being stupid.

Can you explain that. Doesn't the DNA repair system corrects any mismatch in genome or reduces mutations that occur. Mutations can occur (inherited or acquired) if there is an error in DNA and is either neutral or harmful. Unless you can prove that there are beneficial mutations. If most mutations known are harmful and causes defects, imagine the odds of having a 'beneficial' mutation if DNA mismatch repair system detects those mutations all the time. If humans evolved from lower life forms, that's a whole lot of mutations and an overworked DNA!
No, most mutations are not harmful. The vast majority of mutations are neutral. The mutations that matter are those in the reproductive system and I am not an expert but the figure I have seen repeated is that on average there are 150 mutations per generation, though I have seen figures as low as a third of that.

Hmm. Not a good analogy. Alternate food sources and inherited immunity to antibiotics isn't the same as evading a predator.

Then don't try to change the question after the fact. Like it or not what you did was a form of lying. So do you want to try again?

Look at the original question that you asked. Read the answer. It answered your question. You really want to ask another question, but you are not intelligent enough to know the right question.

How can mutations create any new, improved varieties?(Recombining English letters will never produce Chinese books.)

How could random mutations create a male and female of the same species? Than if random mutation did create 2 of the same species how long would that take? Would be in the life time of the first one?

Not a good analogy but I'm thinking of what happens in the cells of organims such as in chamelions when they contract the cells in their skin and changes color. The E Coli bacteria most likely developed enzymes called citrate permease that transports citrate from outside the cell through cell membrane and into its interior. Think of the cell action going on here, it's basically the same idea even if it's for different purpose.

Oh my a well placed mama joke. Is the need to insult others a learned behavior or did your mother not love you enough to keep your stepdad out of your pants? How old were you when he lost interest?

Hey jerk, I was trying to help you and answer your questions.

It seems like you would rather try to enter the contest for thread idiot. All you have contributed to this thread so far is a bucketful of stupid along with about 200 pounds of attitude. Not a very wise mixture.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
