My four posts do not exhaust my discussion of the previous post and I'll continue with those before addressing this.
One small note: you write "Downes mentions misappropriations of evolutionary theory that he and I both agree are dangerous and that do not emerge in any way from my account. I’m not sure why he does that."
It is becomes some of the characterizations of evolutionary theory in my post may suggest a misinterpretation of evolutionary theory (specifically, interpretations of the form "Species x developed feature y because it needed to z" which suggest that evolutionary theory is teleological and value-laden) and I wanted to ensure that readers understood that this was not my understanding of evolutionary theory.
