And a bad year for a 19th-century creation myth. It’s understandable that Darwinists are a bit dejected.
Against Yale polymath David Gelernter, atheist Jerry Coyne had to resort to engaging the actual arguments.
If anyone is worrying, it is Coyne and his fellow Darwinists, alarmed at the defection of a stellar intellect like Gelernter.
On race, scientists followed Darwin’s thinking until religious and civil rights leaders, not other scientists, ultimately shamed them out of it.
It is, I believe, a revelation about our scientific culture and particularly about the trust we should place in a “science consensus” that should shake us to our bones.
