As I noted here at ENV on Monday, a recent paper confirms a key inference I made in 2007 in The Edge of Evolution.
Darwinian theory proposes that the astoundingly intricate machinery of the cell developed step by tiny step, by natural selection acting on random mutation.
The edge of evolution lies where reasonably probable, random mutation-selection runs out of steam and “dumb luck” (or purposeful design) takes over.
As you may know, William Lane Craig debated physicist Sean Carroll in New Orleans last weekend.
Richard Lenski’s work represents a baleful portent for any theory of evolution that relies exclusively on blind, undirected processes.
