A few thoughts on Jerry Coyne v. Paul Nelson.
An email correspondent says that criticizing Darwinian “evolution” and “evolutionists” is wrong-headed; not because he is a Darwinist himself.
Anthony Gottlieb waves regular evolution (of the body) through all the checkpoints while (humorously) examining claims that various forms of behavior are “adaptive.”
Before these latest results, Darwinists could plausibly claim that junk DNA was their evidence.
To disprove Darwinism, Jerry Coyne expects us to find an “adaptation” that is certainly and provably unhelpful to those exhibiting the behavior.
