When critics claim that research is not permitted to detect design because that would stop science, it is they who hold science back.
Universal functional requirements, but without the identity of material components — sounds like design.
The research paper avers, “These results support the capability of molecular replicators to spontaneously develop complexity through Darwinian evolution.”
In previous posts, I’ve covered how neo-Darwinism can make biological redundancy more confusing than it should be.
Materialists want us to twist our minds into knots: we’re supposed to describe a world of purpose and direction as if it had no purpose and direction.
