Our bioethicist colleague Wesley Smith had a very interesting and wide-ranging conversation with Stephen Meyer.
Wells encourages more than a modest dose of skepticism, and gives the example of the supposed “backward wiring of the vertebrate eye” as a case in point.
As a colleague points out, Nagel’s departure from the “right-thinking consensus” is on a par with David Gelernter’s 2019 farewell to Darwinism.
Evolutionary orthodoxy is maintained by a “Castro Consensus.” This makes the Darwinian consensus questionable and in need of re-examination.
In Wesley J. Smith’s phrase, in the present cultural moment, we have witnessed “the French Revolution attacking the American Revolution.”
