Because of the “dysmorphic” phenotype from a homozygous genotype, these mutant genes would be highly unlikely to become fixed in a population.
The interpretation of the results as showing “latent” genetic capabilities has teleological overtones that are compatible with intelligent design.
Every cosmology either has theistic implications, or ends up wrecking the basis for rational scientific investigation of nature.
I appreciate that Dr. Falk and his colleagues at BioLogos would like to engage in a productive “dialogue” with proponents of intelligent design.
