Such constructive, respectful debate, in multiple media, was extremely encouraging.
The authors of a paper in Current Biology present the problem of the Cambrian explosion — the rapid emergence of new forms of animal life — as it own solution.
In my previous replies to Marshall’s review in Science of Darwin’s Doubt, I’ve responded to his critiques of the main argument of the book.
According to Charles Marshall, I argue “that paleontologists are unable to explain the Cambrian explosion, thus opening the door to the possibility of a designer’s intervention.”
To rebut the central argument of Darwin’s Doubt, Marshall must deny (or push from view) what we know about what new forms of animal life require as a condition of their existence.
