This is the output of a program written in VBA that possesses the following properties of living systems:
1) The poorer suited a 'bug' is to the environment, the more likely it is to die.
2) Reproduction of survivors with random variation.

The program demonstrates that evolution is a property of life. It is not up for debate, it's a property of life, like nuclei are a property of atoms, mass is a property of matter, charge is a property of electrons, three sides is a property of triangles etc.

Here the properties of living systems are given to a population in a computer program. It is found that the properties of living systems inevitably lead to evolution.

Each bug is made up of about 50 genes. The less suited a bugs' genes are to the environment, the less chance it has of survival. Anyone who survives can breed.

Fossil records, DNA, and detailed mechanism of the causes of reproduction with variation are all very interesting, but are essentially peripheral detail in demonstrating evolution as a property of living systems.
