Criteria I 372
Gene/Selection/Dawkins: under reasonable consideration, selection does not directly affect the genes! The DNA is spun into proteins, wrapped in membranes, shielded from the world and invisible to natural selection. (Like GouldVsDawkins.)
The selection would also hardly have a criterion for DNA molecules. All genes look the same just like all tapes look the same! Genes show in their effects!
(S) effect creates identity.)
