Semi-Dynamic Systems

At times Creationists and Evolutionists resemble the “Blind men and the elephant fable”. They have each seized upon pieces of the puzzle but neither has achieved the complete picture. The most parsimonious perspective can be found through a semi-dynamic systems approach. Recent studies of the peppered moth suggest that the classic coloration changes are the result of a single hot-spot in the genome. Such constrained elasticity allows organisms like moths and Tanganyikia Cichlids to rapidly adapt to environmental pressures while still retaining the robust basal genome of the taxonomic family. This type of genomic epilibrium is the secret behind the longevity across the millennia.
