|Chunky wanted to make the peculiar claim that there is no such animal as mainstream evolutionary biology.|
Ultimately, Angryoldfatman made my contrary point for me, apparently unawares:
|An UNorthodox evolutionary framework would be something like Intelligent Design or Morphogenic Fields. These do not fit in the Theory of Evolution as the term is currently understood.|
No kidding. And relative to these alternatives (and Baraminology and Front Loading, two further hopeful guesses earnestly discussed upthread) the paper in question fits neatly within the framework of contemporary evolutionary theory, and utilizes that theory to understand its findings, Chunkdz's concrete exertions notwithstanding.
You know, someone should tell Chunky that there are products now that will make his exertions less concrete.
It's natural to be curious about our world, but the scientific method is just one theory about how to best understand it. We live in a democracy, which means we should treat every theory equally. - Steven Colbert, I Am America (and So Can You!)
