By Laura Seitz-Wald and Brian Murphy – 12/05/18 06:01:03An evolutionary biologist says that evolution is a “human achievement.”
John Ioannidis, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Michigan, said in a TED talk that evolutionary science is the “only science that is scientifically validated and the only science that has been proven to work.”
“If you look at the evidence for evolution, it is just absolutely stunning.
And yet, in the absence of any scientific evidence that we’re not all being manipulated by evolution, people cling to that notion,” Ioannis said.
“We can argue about the validity of evolution, and you can debate its validity, but if it is proven to be true, we are going to go out and make it happen.”
Ioannidis was a keynote speaker at the 2017 TED Conference, which was organized by the Center for Science and Democracy, an organization founded by actor Mark Ruffalo, to promote science and skepticism in the United States.
During his talk, Ioannides discussed the research and discoveries of evolution and how they affect humans.
In the book titled “The Evolution of the Human Mind,” which has been described as “the most ambitious and provocative work in evolutionary biology in more than a decade,” Ioannaidis says that the “evolution of the human mind has been driven by Darwinian evolution.”
In the text, he argues that Darwinian Darwinism is the basis for evolutionary theory.
“Darwinian Darwinists have argued for their position that evolution occurs by natural selection of traits,” Ioannisidis wrote.
“But there is a third theory, which they call a ‘biological hypothesis’ that proposes that natural selection can also occur on a genetic level.
This means that the evolution of the mind is guided by an integrated set of biological and evolutionary processes, not just by natural Darwinism.”
I believe that evolution and the ‘biologically hypothesis’ can be understood in the same way that evolution can be explained by a biological theory.
That is, we don’t have to choose between the biological theory and the biological process.
We can both see that the biological hypothesis explains the origin of the universe.
“IoSannis, however, argues that the evolutionary theory, by nature, is more likely to explain evolution than the biological explanation.
He said that because the evolutionary process involves “complex adaptive systems” that change over time, it can be “explained in a much simpler, simpler way.””
The more complex the evolutionary system, the more complex is the biological system, and vice versa.
The natural explanation of evolution can then be explained in terms of biological processes,” Ioanesidis wrote in the book.”
In a world where evolution is the ultimate human accomplishment, then I believe it is only logical that evolution be understood as a science.
It is only natural.
“Ioanis said that while the scientific community has come to a consensus about the origin and nature of life, “we still have a long way to go.
“In an interview with CNN, Ioannisides said that we still have an “impossible problem” to solve in our understanding of how the universe works.”
The problem with science, and I am a scientist, is that science tells us about things that we can’t explain in a scientific way, and we have to go into these deep questions and we cannot do it,” Ioansis said in the interview.”
It’s like the search for the Titanic.
We know that the Titanic was sunk by a terrible iceberg, but we still don’t know how to find the iceberg.
Science is not a magic wand that can solve the problem.
“Ionisides, who also serves as the editor-in-chief of the journal Evolutionary Anthropology, said that “we are at a point where we have a pretty good understanding of the complexity of the environment, but no one knows how complex it is.””
There are many ways that the universe may have changed over time,” Ioanyis said, “and there are many species that we cannot explain in the simplest terms.””
So if you don’t understand how evolution is driven, if you can’t understand the evolutionary complexity of life or the history of life — if you cannot understand how complex life actually is — then it makes it much more difficult to understand evolution.
“Iosannis noted that “this is a question of life” and that he believes it’s “the ultimate test of the capacity of science to understand the universe and to understand how the complex world of life evolved.””
We have a great opportunity to change the course of our understanding,” Ioananis said at the TED event.”
As we continue to understand more about the complexity and history of the cosmos, we will begin to realize that life, in a sense, has been the ultimate test.
