Studies on Insect Wings Validate Engineering Models for Adaptation
The “long-winged” phenotype is generated if the environmental conditions deteriorate due to reduced food supply or overpopulation.
The Design Connection in Biological Tracking Systems
If organisms resulted from haphazard undirected processes, their design constraints would be few and highly flexible.
Nearly All of Evolution Is Best Explained by Engineering
Transposable elements modify gene regulation in maize to confer drought tolerance, alter flowering time, and enable plants to grow in toxic aluminum soils.
Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection Has Left a Legacy of Confusion over Biological Adaptation
Our ability to adapt to fantastically diverse circumstances did not result from the happenstance of environmental conditions.
Engineering Better Explains Adaptation than Evolutionary Theory
The genetic variation in any species is confined to a limited set of variables such as a finch beak’s thickness.
