Don't you just love those photo series of the young'uns at different ages?

I would love to known how you think random mutations can be linked to the life history transitions of octopuses, which all serious scientists have linked to chromosomal rearrangements via the physiology of nutrient-dependent reproduction.
Thanks for continuing to support the claims of all serious scientists by not responding to my comment. At the same time, other intelligent people realize you are refuting the claims of all teleophobes.
You have linked to an example used to support my detailed explanation of how atoms are linked to ecosystems in all living genera. As you must know, nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions and chromosomal rearrangements are the key to biodiversity.
Thanks for helping to move science forward after decades of your displayed ignorance.

Excerpt:: "In most cases, it is unclear whether these changes were beneficial themselves or, alternatively, hitchhiked to fixation with other beneficial mutations. In any case, many genome rearrangements accumulated over decades of evolution, providing these populations with genetic plasticity reminiscent of that observed in some pathogenic bacteria."
In case you haven't realized it yet, they are still trying to link mutations to evolution. But now that takes three mutations for the nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled stability of organized genomes to arise in the context of the chromosomal rearrangements.
Cool-looking stuff. I know your specialty is embryology, and I'd be interested in perhaps seeing a comparison of cephalopod and vertebrate embryonic development in a future post.
