    •  Evolution doesn't require death (0+ / 0-)

      It requires adaptability.

      Bacteria thrive. And evolve. Roaches diversify. Some are now evolving a antipathy to sweet taste because of encountering sweet baits.

      •  Death the key ingredient in evolution. (0+ / 0-)

        "The secrets of evolution are death and time—the deaths of enormous numbers of life forms that were imperfectly adapted to the environment; and time for a long succession of small mutations that were by accident adaptive, time for the slow accumulation of patterns of favorable mutations" Cosmos, 1980, p. 3.

        Evolution is all about who dies and who doesn't die.
