Genetic Algorithms Have a Goal, Natural Evolution Does Not
Richie the evoTARD Hughes still thinks that just because someone can call a search heuristic a "genetic" algorithm that there is really genetics involved. He also thinks that just because wikipedia can say GAs mimic natural evolution, that they do.
Well GAs only mimic natural evolution if and only if natural evolution is Intelligent Design evolution. Ya see GAs have goals and according to the theory of evolution there aren't any goals, meaning mutations are not searching for some solution for the organism. With GAs the whole point is searching for a solution (or solutions). Specified solutions such that you know when the algorithm is finished.
