No shit the percentages were pulled out of my ass. It is a literal computer simulation that demonstrates natural selection. The actual percentages merely change the ‘evolution rate.’ If you cannot recognize this, then you probably don’t understand evolution.

And it actually shows how evolution is the outcome of randomly generated traits being ‘selected’ for via an increased chance of achieving a certain outcome (adaption to the environment). This is the essence of evolution and natural selection that your explanation lacks.

Claiming the genetics are ‘trying’ out different things makes it seem as if the genetics go different ways in order to ‘adapt’ when this is demonstrably wrong. The adaption is the selection process, and this is the outcome of probabilistic phenomena.

Your type likes to given an illusion of understanding via using an analogy to ‘explain’ a concept, but then you end up explaining how the analogy works instead of the actual concept.

I proposed an actual model that explains evolution in a static environment with a single trait being selected for. This model can easily be expanded.

In fact, many don’t realize that truly understanding evolution requires the knowledge of advanced mathematics as it is a highly mathematical field.

Research mathematical population dynamics to get a taste for it.
