Yes, but is it really going to persuade YECs to suggest that there is
an evolutionary explanation to EVERYTHING?

Patently Beethoven's Ninth Symphony did NOT evolve. Some of the ideas
were derived from the Choral Fantasy, but the notion that the one
evolved out of the other is ridiculous. It was put together by a
creative genius, and some of the ideas in it were regarded as totally
revolutionary. (The "r" makes a difference).

There is just no way you can liken it to evolution. YECs object to
"evolution-ism", and suggesting that everything evolved like that is
precisely what they object to.
