Considering several recent papers shows that eliminating evolutionary words and concepts simplifies and improves scientific explanations.
Evolutionists now increasingly believe that major adaptations are driven by neutral mutations.
Of course finches don’t multiply and cycle through generations as rapidly as bacteria. Still, these birds have been isolated on the iconic islands for some 2 million years.
The evidence commonly cited to argue for evolution’s ability to drive large-scale transformations is almost always circular.
News from Princeton discusses the work of Tom Smith and Bridgett vonHoldt, who have solved a “long-standing finch beak mystery.” The answer turned out to be Mendelian, not Darwinian.
