What happens when an up-and-coming European bioscientist flips from Darwin disciple to Darwin defector, builds a highly successful scientific career, and then writes a book about it?
They are yet another evolutionary icon that Jonathan Wells, perhaps in his next book, could handily leash and take for a walk.
Of all the new icons that Jonathan Wells discusses, including cancer, the appendix, and walking whales, my sentimental favorite must be the human tail.
A new original research paper on mutagenesis comprising 240,000 plants in the journal Floriculture and Ornamental Biotechnology favorably cites to “intelligent design proponents,” including Michael Behe, William Dembski, Jonathan Wells, and Stephen Meyer, as advocating one of various legitimate “scientific theories on the origin of species.” The paper was authored by Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig, a recently retired biologist from the Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Germany who investigates the origin of certain features of flowering plants, or angiosperms. Citing to skeptics of neo-Darwinism such as Behe and “the almost 900 scientists of the Scientific Dissent from Darwinism,” the paper notes that: Many of these researchers also raise the question (among others), why — even after inducing literally billions of Read More ›
