Science has made many of its grandest leaps in the face of a mainstream of scientists stubbornly defending a dominant but misguided paradigm.
What if the structure of the landscape is like a block of Swiss cheese, flat and riddled with holes?
Rope Kojonen wants to join “design and evolution,” but only by setting aside some of the main features of the flagellum.
It required the truly inimitable intellect of Aquinas to Christianize and modernize what Aristotle had said 1,600 years before him.
I hope it’s clear that Kojonen’s effort to harmonize evolution and design (as he envisions it) is not so easy in the case of the bacterial flagellum.
