VMartin more dishonesty. Every appeal to anti-selection you have made has been straight from the german school. This school has two camps: materialist and mystic.
Where does aposematic coloration come from?
Remember this is two questions: I think you are interested in the primary (from where does the coloration or patterning arise). This is not a selective issue. Your antiselectionist lit examples (convenient how your best stuff 'is not available in english', eh?) that i am familiar with posit channels or furrows of development that are more or less hard wired.
The question 'how does mimicry become fixed in populations' is clearly answered by selection. While I could be convinced otherwise and sometimes have, I find it hard to believe you could be so thick as to deny this.
So, back to the question. Where does aposematic coloration come from? I wanna hear it. Mind precedes matter and butterflies think it into existence? Or is it a spandrel?
