To those who say ID advocates are only critical of Darwinism because they are not sufficiently versed in genetics, I have a two-word reply.
Evolutionists do not mind if selection goes forward, backward, up, down or sideways, as long as Darwin’s honor is maintained.
If mutations are the raw material for evolution, they are like explosives with unpredictable effects.
One might call the 20th century a “philosopher of the gaps” period, with scientists basking in the headlines and philosophy finding less and less to do.
The problem these efforts face in the lab is exactly the problem faced by Darwin’s evolutionary mechanism in the wild.
