How do proponents of evolution explain beauty in coral reef systems?
In explaining the beauty of marine fish, biologists attempt to invoke evolutionary mechanisms in a desperate attempt to justify naturalism in the face of no evidence. None of these articles address the challenges made on this website. All of the research attempts to explain functionality. It is believed that if a function can be imagined, regardless of how speculative, that evolution can create order. No thought is given as to how random mutations could result in such ordered patterns could evolve. A perusal of these articles will demonstrate how storytelling has become the norm in explaining evolution.
In all of these articles (above), the imagined functions of ornamentation that are attributed to evolution could have been achieved by random coloration such as seen in the selectively bred koi fish. Thus, none of these articles address the fundamental question. How does evolution explain the beauty of reef fish?
