Computer scientist Winston Ewert applied the concept of “common design” to propose a “dependency graph” model of organismal relationships.
Their scrupulous work found that Jerry Coyne and others, in bullying Christians and Jews on how “we can dismiss a physical Adam and Eve with near scientific certainty,” were in reality poorly supported.
If the evidence is more suggestive of a creative enterprise like software engineering, that would have major implications.
Molecular clocks are a relatively simple concept.
A dependency graph is not any old ad hoc hypothesis. It was posited because it is something that we observe in software engineering.
