The error is not completely different from imagining that natural selection really can do what creative intelligence — foresight! — can do.
That Darwinism seems even superficially plausible depends completely on the ability of living things to reproduce themselves without significant degradation.
The rejoinder to this way of thinking, which Jay Richards expresses with wonderful concision, is that humans possess a unique capacity forever setting us apart from machines.
Perhaps the evidence for the vast scope of Darwin’s theory really isn’t as strong as biologists over the years have been telling each other.
