Hello to all,
Thanks Alan for the invitation and the thread. I don't really know what to say here. The reference to the evolution of the horse was one of many that Schindewolf uses in his book for his position against gradualism.
Berg essentially argues against selection using many examples from modern biological history.
I've also read recently, the excellent books "Evolution: A Theory in Crisis" and "Nature's Destiny" by Michael Denton.
I also respect immensely Dr. John Davison's Prescribed Evolutionary Hypothesis, although I must admit, much of it is over my head.
I myself am no scientist. As far as formal training, I'm more than ignorant. What little I know has been self taught. I spent a lot of time on the talk.origins newsgroup sharpening my views, but my positions are not set in stone. I have not yet decided what I think really happened in the "history of life" on this planet, but I am convinced of one thing: whatever happened was by design.
Also, I must say that I have very little free time to devote to this discussion - probably 1 or 2 hours a week - so there might be some long delays between posts for me.
