Now that - who are we to definitely state if something has failed?kinda was my point.. In this example its the same genetics run in modern hives (in the preserve set aside to keep these bees pure) and they need treatments.. natural slection/darwin/black box has failed
I am of the opinion that "black box" methods do work.
No need to get hang over the internal mechanics and labels and definitions (which will be debated for as long as I am alive - so not gonna worry anymore).
I think it is becoming more clear now, we should go back to the classroom and redo the entire "Darwinian evolution" demo.
It was a fine demo and made a lot of sales.
It just did not represent the real-life situation very well.
