In this way, the majority of evolutionary biologists, insofar as they understand the design inference at all, rationalize it away.
Writes Professor Gelernter, “The origin of species is exactly what Darwin cannot explain.”
Imagine if Charles Darwin could have peered into one of today’s high-powered microscopes and seen the complexity and function in even the simplest living cells.
“It looked like a fern. But as a budding geologist, [UK teenager Tina] Negus knew these 600 million year old rocks were too old to host such a plant.”
Charles Darwin always recognized to some extent the problem of removing all vestiges of intelligent causation from evolutionary processes.
