Charles Darwin was a hack who copied Al Jahiz Lord M

A thousand years before Darwin, Arab philosopher Al Jahiz developed the theory of Natural selection and evolution. (776-869 AD)

“Animals engage in a struggle for existence; for resources, to avoid being eaten and to breed. Environmental factors influence organisms to develop new characteristics to ensure survival, thus transforming into new species. Animals that survive to breed can pass on their successful characteristics to offspring.” Al Jahiz

 Its interesting when one asks, What is the process of random mutations then selection of positive adaptation that leads to survival and increased replication of that positive adaptation?

 This process is a recursive function that has led to the fractal we call life on earth.(Nature)

Its no wonder Darwin 1000 years after Al Jahiz noticed this same function by studying beaks of birds. Such a small part of Nature.

 The emergence that is Nature is not understandable by the human brain which only gets a small incite into it when the recursive function is put into a computer model.
