No, sorry.

Please answer the question.

Do you have an alternate hypothesis for how the coloration of these butterflies has come about, and if so, what is it, how does it work, and how do we test it?  What evidence can you present to support your hypothesis?

"This one guy says evolution sucks" is not a valid scientific hypothesis.

Answer the questions, or go bother someone else.

The end.

I suppose you know that there is a small difference between wasps and butterflies. I answered your questions. We have discussed aposematism of wasps. I am surprised that you changed the topic to the butterflies now. Of course I have no problem to address aposematism of ladybirds, poisonous catterpilars or butterflies as well. Do you want me to discuss aposematism of Monarchs butterflies or other "poisonous" butterflies?
 

Just a question: if you see a colorfull butterfly how do you know it is "aposematic" or "non-aposematic"? Do you have any key which butterfly species are "aposematic" and having "warning coloration" and which not- just seeing their wing patterns? I can explain you something about so called aposematism of butterflies. I can address the problem of aposematism on examples or generally. It's on you.

But I suppose that we are discusssing "aposematism" of wasps preliminary. Anyway no problem to discuss "poisonous"  butterflies, ants or whatever - and their mimics.

But if you are lost in the problem of aposematism and mimicry maybe it's you who should "go bother someone else", don't you think so Lou FCD?

No arguments? Just banning instead or what?

As it is unlikely in the extreme that this conversation will ever go anywhere, I'm locking the thread.

Should anyone (other than VMartin) wish to discuss the topic generally for the sake of actual interest, PM me and I'll either re-open this one or start a fresh one sans VTrolling.
