After following the discussion about evolution versus design for the past few decades, I have noticed a common trend.
If designing proteins is difficult for us, it is great big wall for random bumbly evolution.
A significant problem for the neo-Darwinian story is the origin of new biological information.
Maybe he believes his goal of persuading non-scientists doesn’t call for the facts to be handled with the care his scientific colleagues expect.
Proteins are composed of a linear string of amino acids, often hundreds in length, and perform all sorts of important tasks in the cell.
