Limits to growth: Bacteria in a bottle
My comment: It would be good if everyone else also knew that the finite growth of bacteria and every other species on this planet is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled. Thereby, Darwin’s ‘conditions of life’ place limits on what it is possible for life to do that are beyond the limits that are considered by most physicists. Life cannot continue to exist without nutrients, inside the jar for example, or if evolution is mutation-driven and the mutations are not controlled by their deleterious effects on pheromone-dependent reproduction. Thus, the concept of mutation-driven evolution, as in predation-driven evolution exemplified by industrial melanism in peppered moths, is one of the most ridiculous misrepresentations of cause and effect ever propagated by evolutionary theorists. Reproduction in moths is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled like it is in the bacteria in the jar and in every other species.
What time is it for you? Time to start thinking, perhaps? Will you think like a biologist, or like a physicist?
