The researchers are not sure whether the gene that suppressed the parasite emerged from a mutation in the local population or whether it was introduced by migratory Southeast Asian butterflies in which the mutation already existed.

But they said that the repopulation of male butterflies illustrates rapid natural selection, a process in which traits that help a species survive become more prominent in a population.


Count on the ID people to pay great attention to paragraph 1, and ignore paragraph 2.

Can we count on VMartin wandering in here and burbling about peppered moths? He seems to be obsessed with them.

As obsessed as he is with JAD, or can nothing go that far?

You NEVER seem to address the fact that the grand majority of people supporting Darwinism in these on line forums and blogs are atheists. That doesn't seem to bother you guys in the least. - FtK
