DISCUSSION: The determinists think that biology must follow universal laws. If something happened, then it must have been because of some law of nature. It couldn’t have been a random coincidence.
- The determinists don’t like the idea of chance. They want there to be laws that cause everything.
- Line 23 says thats determinists think that DNA changes at the same speed, always. This seems to go against that, even though DNA and physical characteristics aren’t quite the same thing.
- The determinists don’t like this either. If we can just figure out the laws, then we should be able to figure everything out.
- Is the process a universal law, or a random process of historical contingency? There’s no way to know if determinists would agree with this idea.
- CORRECT. The determinists like things to be the unavoidable result of eternal laws.
