As evidence, you missed the main point and focused on the lead-in.
Then you lead in was irrelevant? Or of minor importance? In that case you need to learn how to write for others (as per your own view of disbursing information). I'll give you a hint:   you should not lead into a topic by using what (in your own critique of my response) is less than the main point you wish to promulgate.

And that being said, you variance was such as to not really deviate from the appropriate format (although you believe otherwise).

In fact, your concept of "Devolution" is just evolution - for devolution, with any reasonable sort of interpretation, would be tending towards throwbacks.

Simpler doesn't mean less evolved. Except, perhaps, as interpreted by simpler minds . . . ?
