|BTW, you didn't reply to my question how bacteria that don't possess a nylonase gene sense nylon in thir environment.|
And on that question: Considering how the prevailing paradigm assumes it was "just random" it's another void in scientific knowledge caused by sloppy science that does not bother to look for how the change occurred. And I sure cannot afford to fund my own research that was to redo all the incomplete/misleading experiments that have been published.
You don't need to do your own research. Thinking would suffice. Your theory imply that a bacterium that doesn't contain a nylonase gene somehow senses nylon - otherwise how would it be capable of making an intelligent decision. Thus, you have to assume at least a second molecule that recognizes nylon. Alternatively you would have to assume that the product of the to be nylonase gene senses nylon and then gives some feed back to its coding sequence that induces its a nucleotide change. Nothing like that has ever been observed. And you betterlookup somatic hypermutation before you mention it again.
