Exactly. Put another way, when asked what is the mechanism for evolution, the reply is:
"The Survival of the Fittest"
Question: define "fittest" (this is a problem for evolutionists, because there is absolutely no way to determine the 'fittest' of a species beforehand: this only becomes clear after observing which members of the species manage to survive over time)
Hence the answer: "those who survive"
Thus, evolutionists are stating a meaningless tautology by actually saying that a central mechanism of evolution is "The survival of those who survive."
silliness, survive = reproduce
those that survive to reproduce are the 'fittest'
