SPORE Creature

The long awaited game Spore is coming out soon. The Creature Creator is now available, but a bunch of us got it in advance (see PZ, Brian, erv, Chad, Brian….) and got to play a little bit.

I can’t wait for the game itself, although, as others have pointed out, the game is not really about evolution. It is, like Pokemon, using the term ‘evolution’ to describe ‘metamorphosis’. All the changes happen to a single individual during an enormously long lifetime. This is one of the basic misunderstandings of evolution by creationists – they missed the memo that evolution operates at the level of populations, not individuals. Perhaps Spore will have that population level added once there are thousands of players on there – let the best adapted players survive and leave offspring, etc….

Anyway, here is my first attempt at making a creature – a huge, ferocious CHICKEN!

    That looks like a roller disco chicken. Interesting adaptation 🙂
