Alas, Coyne’s review of Darwin Devolves has too little intellectual content to sustain any real engagement.
“Darwin’s mechanism,” Behe shows in the new book, “works chiefly by squandering genetic information for short-term gain.”
To me, this kind of back and forth is more amenable to serious discussion and reflection than quick volleys on a discussion board.
This is what I mean when I say the list of a thousand plus vastly understates the number of scientists who are skeptical of evolutionary theory.
What do you give a great scientist for his birthday when he’s already got everything?
