People aren’t stupid. Science is a public enterprise, and public acceptance has always been its most significant seal of approval.
In August 2004 I received an email inquiry from plant biologist Art Hunt. He had written a draft for a blog piece reviewing a research article of mine.
The idea that it isn’t hard to stumble upon things that are good for something doesn’t explain the origin of exquisite things.
He says, "Recombination can do all the things that Axe thinks are impossible." Can it really? Please show me, Martin!
Biologists, unlike chemists or physicists, tend to think they are doing science when they name things.
Since some of Poenie’s criticisms touch on my work, I’ll offer my perspective in a few posts, each focusing on one of Poenie’s posted comments.
An article from Ghent University in Belgium claims a recent scientific paper has rescued evolutionary theory by solving the problem of evolutionary innovation.
I’m surprised at how quickly Darwinists have abandoned any claim that evolution is a powerful process at work today.
“[T]he data show that birds and mammals at Rancho La Brea show complete stasis and were unresponsive to the major climate change that occurred at 20 ka.”
“The two articles with Rick are important…because they were, frankly, prescient, anticipating the recent ENCODE results.”
