No-one answered this question in the Education & Science forum.
I guess all the inhouse experts are this forum.
Here's the link.
You are question seems to be whether anyone recently saw an amoeba turn into a blue whale. I imagine everyone assumed that to be rhetorical.
My answer, in kind, would be: have you recently seen someone bring a four day old corpse of a man back to life?
You do know cell division is exponential, right? 100,000 cells per day sounds like a lot, but when you hit a certain point, 100,000 cells are swiftly divided in less than an hour, and it keeps going--much like us, whales lose a lot of their skin cells as they swim (along with any other cells in their body that decay), and so that extremely rapid division is necessary.
Ok. So, that means that the whale went from amoeba (or some other one cell creature) to it's current size in MUCH less time?
Do amoeba's (or any other one cell creatures) multiply by hundred's of thousands of cells (into new creatures, not thousands of single cell copies/offspring) in any given year?
That IS the evolutionary process, is it not?
It means an gamete becomes a blue whale in months.
If you are actually talking about evolution you should be less cryptic. Getting big is one of the least impressive things that can happen to an evolving species.
