Alas, Coyne’s review of Darwin Devolves has too little intellectual content to sustain any real engagement.
In a previous article I described the evidence that cooption faces insurmountable mathematical challenges in explaining the origins of such complex molecular machines as the bacterial flagellum.
One of most popular attempts at explaining the flagellum via cooption was developed by Nicholas Matzke.
Let’s just say that Michael Behe’s latest work has further refined his edge of evolution, in a highly significant way. Intrigued?
If life didn’t depend on these acts by cellular organelles and molecules, we would consider them death-defying performances in the greatest show on earth.
