".....But it , too, helps propel the genes of the successful into the
future generations. ......"

Question:
Other than noting the genes were propelled into future generations how
was their successfulness independently measured?

Formulating an observation such as the existence of genes in a
tautological manner is a way of disguising that a you have no answer
for the phenomena. The sentence just like the Wikipedia definition of
natural selection is a reformulation of observation:
1) Genes are in existence because of something we call life but we
can't define what it is within our materialist premises. -

Thus it follows the following steps:
STep1:
Genes are in existence - Truism

2:
Reformulate the truism tautologically in order to obscure the truism:
Those genes that are in existence were propelled from previous
generations into the future and thus there are successful. -
Tautology.

And this is done in a deceitful attempt to blow smoke and obscure the
fact that real question is : How did "life" bring genes into
existence.
And we have no idea within our materialist assumptions and thus we
will deceive people by stating tautologies until such a time if ever
we manage to get an answer within our atheist premises.

Are you truly incapable of thinking?

What was the real reason the runner won the race drugs, lung
capacity ?

The winner of the race was successful is a tautology.

The observation is: He won the race
Why did he win the race? Because he was successful which doesn't tell
us anything we don't already know and is a tautology. The real
reason (drugs, stronger, lung capacity) needs to be derived
independently elsewhere. A tautology merely reformulates the
observation without giving us the actual reason for the observation.

According to that idiot everything is a tautology. It would never occur to
him that "success" is not the cause of the win, it is a result of it.
