    what a chance would produce this beauty ?

    you may say that beauyt is a relative thing

    and I will say everything is relative also

    best regards

      Good point. The evolutionists would have us believe that the plumage evolved *in parallel* with the inclination of the other peacocks to be attracted to such. They assert that at the same time the plumage evolved, the DNA mutated in neighboring birds of the opposite sex such that one found itself attracted to the the other.

      So their explanation is two temporally and spatially adjacent independent systems self-assembling in lockstep.

        I think it is all about there must be someway creatures have evolved by
        they don't know yet but there should be someway

        anyway but religions ?

        they think it is more reasonable for creatures to evolve in billions of years than being created by an unseen being

          The evolutionists premise assumes that life self-assembled over millions of years, not billions. That fact aside, the peacock hasn't been around that long anyhow.

          Regardless of when peacocks first appeared, we are asked to believe that the plumage evolved in parallel with the systems that find the plumage attractive. That's my point.

            I see ,
            so do you think this parallel existence is impossible or we can't know without studying biology further ?

              I know that information does not spontaneously generate in the way that would be necessary to support the evolutionists premise.

        This is a gross distortion of what evolutionists "believe." lol

        No wonder you are pushing the whole, "there must have been a creator." Clearly you do not understand evolution one little bit.

        There was no separate and "parallel," development, nor was there "two temporally and spatially adjacent independent systems self-assembling in lockstep,"

        Put as simply as I can - Peahens developed a preference for peacocks with bright plumage. Probably, but not 100% because these were the dominant males and their plumage appeared more aggressive to potential predators, therefore they were more likely to survive to breeding age and their offspring were more successful. Nothing separate about the preference of peahens for peacocks with bright plumage and the development of brighter plumage on the males.

        Hope that explains it a little better.

        1. Eng.M profile image69
          Eng.Mposted 9 years agoin reply to this

          so you mean the plumage brightness has developed the preference in Peahens and not the other way around

          it is like there were many males but only the most beautifule ones won , that's logical

          but logic doesn't always happen , does it ?

            Eng.Mposted 9 years agoin reply to this

            and niccomp concern was as I understood that how come the preference and the brightness coexist

            chance ??

            peobabilty and errors ?? for how many years ??

          2. Mark Knowles profile image60
            Mark Knowlesposted 9 years agoin reply to this

            No. The brightness developed as a way to defeat predators. The ones with the bright plumage survived long enough to breed, and became more successful. The females therefore began to prefer the ones with the brighter plumage. Because they were more successful at breeding and their offspring were therefore more successful.

                With peer reviews. lol Like it says in the bible. lol

                And if you want to talk about circular logic, I have a great book.

                Sure is entertaining - some one like you asking for peer reviews. Will you accept it if I offer some? lol

                    Sorry - not seeing how you are conducting yourself as an adult here. Merely asking for peer reviews on scientifically accepted information does not count. Please feel free to offer any contradictory evidence if you have any, but assuming that there must be a creator because you do not accept scientific evidence - well - I don't know what to call that. Irrational? Childish? Troll-like? Any of these would do.

              Call a spade a spade. It (the process you described) is pure conjecture, (imagination). cool
              I dreamt up god, you dreamt up peacock-peahen sexual desires. Quite simple, really. lol

                dj - evolutionary development is well documented and we are able to observe the process actually happening. A similar development has been observed in Lion fish.

        Errrr ... noooooo ... that's not the theory.

        If you are going to try to explain evolution, the necessary first step is that you understand the theory.

        You clearly don't.

        Sexual selection is a different process from natural selection. Read up on both of them, then come back and try again.

    Do you think that peacocks' display is for the enjoyment of humans or the attraction of peahens?

    1. Eng.M profile image69
      Eng.Mposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      I know it helps for attracting a female

      but

      may be it's for both and may be for more

      1. Mark Knowles profile image60
        Mark Knowlesposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        So what you are saying is - even though the peacock's display evolved over millions of years to attract a mate, some god actually put it there so we could decide it is beautiful. As opposed to the ugly animals that are there to annoy us?

    natural selection for peacocks means certain species have been exposed to different environmets untill some indvidual(s) have/has gained this relative beauty to meet females and survive

    are there any examples of expected situations these kinds have gone through ? did evolutionists put basic ways for their expectations which are scientifically experimentally examed and explained ?

    the only thing they agree at is the main idea of having a variety of species due to natural selection
    how did natural selection mechanism come in the first place ?

    unless it was the infinite , main and first rule of life
