Silk is no different than any other feature, all are derived from mutation.
How do you know what the odds are if you do not know the mechanism or path to be taken?
You make claims all the time that you don't know if are true or not, so I think this is a silly question on your part.
But, anyway, the odds from getting from one functional protein to another has been demonstrated, and its exceedingly high. Essentially, ZERO
If that's the best you can do, then I rest my case.
A creature that jumps from branch to branch, could be seen to be pre adapted to gliding, and gliding to flying.
Your assuming a gigantic leap to a fully developed feature, if the feature develops in small increments, so will the means of using it.
Really!!! You don't know how any of this could really happen, but your so postive that the means to use such complicated functions would also be produced by chance.
Keep the faith brother... You are certainly a true beliver....
Time is an illusion! how so?
Implicit in the claim that evolution has taken place over hundredes of millions of years, is the result that at any point in time we should be able to see these ongoing changs. At any point in time, we should be able to see new genetic informaiton being generated, and new functions coming into existance, and use.
None are evident in nature, and none have ever been witnesses in all of human history, that ~7000 years. So, the time is actually cut down by at least a factor of 7000.
Its an illusion because emperical relality demonstrates your claim, not to mention your belief system, is false.
