Michigan State University biologist Richard Lenski and collaborators have just published a terrific new paper.
William Dembski and Robert J. Marks developed the concept of active information to measure the extent to which a search function appears pre-programmed to find some target.
“Darwin’s mechanism is dominated by ‘Poison-Pill’ mutations: positively-selected, loss-of-function mutation.” It “squanders genetic information for short-term gain.”
There is simply no way for any unguided, unintelligent account of the unfolding of life to avoid the bane of helpful degradative mutations.
Atheist biologist Richard Dawkins and others have pointed to man’s best friend as confirmation that evolution creatively builds new species.
