Move to fun?[edit]

Move to fun? It's not really a mainspace article? Or iz I rong agin? humanUser talk:Human 18:28, 17 November 2007 (EST)

while the existing article is not really worth it, I think a real article could be created "de-evolution" is a common enough idea in creationist circles. That all microevolution is the corruption of the perfect creation after the sin. tmtoulouse persecute 18:30, 17 November 2007 (EST)

If less intelligent people... were more liable to reproduce for some reason"[edit]

To my (admittedly cynical) view, this seems to actually be happening. Ebon (talk) 12:51, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Darwin awards and de-evolution: how are they linked?— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

Political devolution[edit]

A passing mention should be made to this - ie the transfer of powers from central government to regional or local government entries. (talk) 16:19, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

De-evolution and degeneracy[edit]

To what extent does de-evolution overlap with the Victorian era concepts of racial and other degeneracy?

What happens if a species 'evolves somewhat into a particular niche' which it then leaves and the more general diversity resumes? (talk) 14:35, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

To you first question: Devolution is a biological activity which doesn't really happen (as the article states). I don't know what you mean by "racial and other degeneracy".
To your second: Organisms adapt to their environments.--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 17:56, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

Proper devolution[edit]

May involve a fish. Anna Livia (talk) 16:19, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

Science Fiction and de-evolution[edit]

Would the Morlocks and Eloi in HG Wells' The Time Machine be an example?

Is the issue to some extent a mis-interpretation of 'simplification to suit the environment' (life in caves losing those adaptations which are light-dependent - chlorophyll, eyes etc)? Anna Livia (talk) 12:33, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, sure. Put in a mention of em', if you want. Twodots (talk) 14:39, 5 January 2021 (UTC)
