For a major intellectual like this to publicly reject evolutionary theory naturally catches the attention of other major intellectuals.
Professor Gelernter, who survived a terror attack by the Unabomber that cost him a hand and an eye, warns that Darwinists will “destroy you” for criticizing their theory.
Fully as important as David Gelernter’s personal apostasy is his testimony about what happens to scientists who choose to “judge for themselves.”
Berlinski’s plea is that the grave contradictions between evolution and evidence at least be forthrightly admitted.
Skeptics of evolutionary theory have argued that proposed Darwinian processes don’t rise to the level of plausible detailed explanations for the emergence of complex life.
