The Brown University biologist is still out there, reassuring the world that unguided “evolutionary mechanisms” comfortably explain the wonders of biology.
Coyne is sure this is going to come as a rude shock, to our colleague and contributor Dr. Behe in particular, “a slap in the face of IDers like Michael Behe — a fish slap like the one below.”
It’s important to note that the “true tempo of early animal evolution” exists in evolutionists’ imaginations, not in the rocks.
Evolution’s deficits had been masked, he realized, by a combination of groupthink and the haziness of what biology could say about the molecular basis of life.
Professor Lenski’s contrasting of the frequency versus importance of evolutionary changes is misconceived and his illustrations are inapt.
