Just dropped by after many years to see how the community is doing? Sad to see that it is dead.

Best wishes to all.

evolution of what?

TR didn't so much evolve into stupor as jump there via some misguided and ill-done alterations masquerading as "upgrades". Or perhaps you want to discuss biology?

An old throwback

by dwdino In reply to evolution of what?

wherein the legacy members overwhelmed the message boards. One of my fond memories of the days gone by.

There was a time, shortly after that thread, where you would be shunned for raising the topic.

No real need to discuss today. Just going back in time and seeing who remains.

Evolution - Biological or Technological?

by naresh.p1007 In reply to Who wants to discuss evol ...

Not quite sure as to which evolution you want to discuss about?

Is it biological evolution or Darwins theory?
Being a post on technology site, you are interested to talk and discuss about the technological evolution.

Looking forward to keep this discussion 'alive'.

presupposition made

by john.a.wills In reply to Who wants to discuss evol ...

Evolution is a proposal or hypothesis about the origin of a species, whether technological or biological. Such a proposal presupposes that the species in question actually had an origin, i.e. that it has not always existed. In the Buddhist scriptures we see a universe in which humans and rabbits and cuckoos and frogs have always been around (not that that is an actual Buddhist doctrine, you understand). This supposition made, there are several broad proposals which can logically be made about the origin of the species of interest. If we opt for evolution from some other species, Darwin's Theory of Natural Selection is not the only next-level option: think of Lamarck. In my book Albatross there is a chapter on this matter, although, alas, I do not go into as much detail as one might perhaps like on the thinkable modes of evolution.

Darwin's theory of Evolution

by kyle.connor211 In reply to presupposition made

The theory of evolution by natural selection, first formulated in Darwin's book "On the Origin of Species" in 1859, is the process by which organisms change over time as a result of changes in heritable physical or behavioral traits.

Changes that allow an organism to better adapt to its environment will help it survive and have more offspring.
Darwin's Theory of evolution got widely accepted in the 1970's. You can read more about it below.

There are very few of us left

And I don't think anybody hangs out the way we once did.

One of the first things they did in that series of 'improvements' was dump the EL thread, which I think WAS an improvement. And I think they needed that terabyte back.

What was the EL thread? I do not seem to remember that.

As for hanging out, I look at the site almost every day, but I log in only if there is something I want either to ask or to contribute.

The thread that shall not be named

by NickNielsen In reply to EL?

A discussion of evolution based on an initial premise of falsehood. I browsed a small part of it once and managed not to get sucked in.
