Perhaps the biggest evolutionary development in the course of the experiment involved some bacteria beginning to feed on citric acid.
An “engineering theory of evolution” might be one way of expressing what the ID proponents who participated in the CELS event were seeking.
In this workshop-like setting, a group of 60 biologists, engineers, medical practitioners, and researchers from related disciplines assembled for three days.
“Imagine engineers were able to design cars with car building factories inside, with the ability to build new cars with car building factories inside them.”
The design hypothesis is not currently the consensus. However, as young scientists, we should courageously question what we are told.
