A recent paper published in PLOS ONE purports to have established Darwinian evolution and common ancestry beyond all questioning.
Mr. Campbell of Science 2.0 has been nursing a grudge against Wesley Smith — why, I do not know.
Jerry Fodor and Massimo Piatelli-Palmarini’s book�What Darwin Got Wrong�was published in 2010. Having read it now, perhaps belatedly, I can report that it is a masterpiece.
The gist of Campell’s new article is that it’s a diagnostic sign that you are seeking to "undermine science" if you insist, in scientific controversies, that definitions matter. What a funny idea!
If Jerry has no free will, he didn’t choose to write his blog post. His blog post was determined by natural history and physical laws, not by intelligence.
Just as Darwinism cannot explain these laws, the laws themselves cannot explain all the adaptive complexity of life. Structuralism leaves plenty of room for intelligent design.
Real Clear Science is a disappointing source of scientific news and opinion, largely because it seems to be edited with the idea that there is no mere “opinion” to it.
Broken genes that appear to have been disabled by mutations have long been the flagship of many a critique of intelligent design.
In the context of scientific controversies from climate change to Darwinian evolution, the buzz phrase of the moment is "science denial."
Proponents of intelligent design have long argued that “specified complexity” is a reliable indicator of design.
