comment Is there a biological mechanism for evolution encoded into our DNA?
(amazon.com/Why-Evolution-True-Jerry-Coyne-ebook/dp/B001QEQRJW is also a great starting point, for example)

You're trying to "bootstrap" your study of this material, and there's nothing wrong with that, but grabbing an article or two would help quickly clear up some of these fallacies (e.g., "Any time a species has needed the development of a specific feature to survive, it has developed that feature, and that feature precisely").

This doesn't really answer the question at hand.

comment Are there other methods besides surgery and hormonal treatments to help undescended testicles?
Questions on the site that are seeking medical advice are off-topic. As such, I have tried to remove the aspects of this that were asking for specifics about treatment. You may need to reframe this even further, though.

comment What can myelination tell you about the evolution of sensory receptors?
I think it's definitely on-topic here and would be welcomed on CogSci as well. The evolution aspect is probably better addressed here, as you have already observed.

comment Isoprene and Acrolein emissions of wood burning, insect burning and smoldering tobacco cigarette
I went ahead and migrated this over. Some users (see above) thought it was too broad, but I think that it narrows down the set of substances enough to be answerable. Feel free to close/reject if you feel it's too broad.

@SatwikPasani I'd say that's a great answer, would you like to add it as one?
