Even as a paleontologist I admit that calling this a real scientific discipline seems like an insult to sciences like physics or chemistry or molecular biology.
Is this what Darwinism would predict? Of course not! Is it instead what intelligent design theory would predict? Indeed it is.
So, is every thing OK with Darwinism after all? No so fast. Actually, there are some problems that do not square well with a Darwinian scenario.
Of course, it is only we “nitpicking” intelligent design proponents who point out such incongruences.
Should we draw any conclusions from such consistent empirical failures of a theory?
