House Dust Mite Study Shows Reverse Evolution Possible
By Staff Reporter | Mar 09, 2013 05:32 AM EST

new study shows that certain organisms can undergo reverse evolution, that is, go back to the way they were living before evolving new traits. The study challenges the idea that evolution is uni-directional and an organism can't undo changes.

The idea that organisms can't revert back is held by Dollo's law, which states "that evolution is not reversible; i.e., structures or functions discarded during the course of evolution do not reappear in a given line of organisms. The hypothesis was first advanced by a historian, Edgar Quinet."


The present study was conducted by a research team led by two biologists from University of Michigan who conducted the study on common house mites that live on mattresses, sofas and carpets. These mites have evolved from parasites that have in turn come from free-living microbes.

"All our analyses conclusively demonstrated that house dust mites have abandoned a parasitic lifestyle, secondarily becoming free-living, and then speciated in several habitats, including human habitations," according to Pavel Klimov and Barry OConnor of the U-M Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.

We have know this for years by studying the behavior of American Progressives, though not as intellectually advanced as the dust mite we know it happens.

As long as the genes for a given trait exist, even recessively, if the environment shifts into a state in which those traits become more favorable for survival, it stands to reason that they would become prominent again. In fact, because the genes are already in place, it would make sense for devolution to be an accelerated process compared to evolution, when the genes for those traits had to develop over eons.

Progressives believed that evolution was a one-way trip into a perfect future, but this demonstrates that evolved species have the capacity for atavistic regression. We joke about how liberals demonstrate this, but their creation of environments that value emotional responses instead of reason, androgyny and diminished fertility create micro-enclaves of metrosexual men and women whose delayed mental maturation may become genetic. Of course, it also means that they will eventually die off as a subspecies as their numbers shrink within the larger human gene pool. We need a name for that subspecies that reflects their traits, something like [I] homo auto eroticus[/l] (self loving man) or homo non utilus (useless man). Just a thought. ..:D
