Tard. Where to begin?
All you have to do is write a program that without using the target sentence and a distance to target metric, reliably achieves it in several dozens to several hundreds of generations, showing implicit [quasi-]latching-ratcheting as it converges on target by a real, current functionality anchored metric of fitness.
I would love to see the result.

WTF? Can anyone translate that from tardese to something resembling English? Is he asking for a simulation of evolution that doesn't incorporate any evolutionary mechanisms?
Ignoring for the moment KF's totally vague wording, I believe the following fit his bill:
Antennaes (no distance metric, no target, all intermediates are functional):
Travelling Salesman (no distance metric, no target, all intermediates are functional):
Unsupervised clustering (no distance metric, no target, all intermediates are functional):
You might think that someone who had spent so much time writing probably over 20,000 words on GAs would have taken the time to read at least half that many words by people who use and understand GAs.
You'd be wrong.
