In butterfly “evolution,” new findings show mechanisms at work other than random mutation and natural selection.
Considering several recent papers shows that eliminating evolutionary words and concepts simplifies and improves scientific explanations.
The two also discuss discontinuities in the fossil record as well as Berlinski’s insistence that “any theory of natural selection must plainly meet what I have called a rule against deferred success.”
Is this proof of Adam and Eve? Far from it. It merely shows they might be possible. This model is scientific and as such is falsifiable.
