Denyse informs us that BIO-Complexity proudly published a review by Matti Leisola, Ossi Pastinen, Douglas Axe: LigninóDesigned Randomness
† †  
Here, we review what is currently known about the structural components of wood that make these materials so difficult to process industrially and so difficult to degrade biologically. We then move to a more philosophical level by considering whether the existence of lignin and the absence of an organism that can grow on lignin are more readily explained from the Darwinian perspective or from the design perspective.

You didn't expect actual research, did you? It's a critical review - duh!

† †  
In the end, it seems plausible that dining on lignin is only difficult, not impossible, but either way the design view seems to offer a more satisfactory account of what we know.

The fatal blow to evolution is already dealt in the abstract: † †  
The Darwinian account must somehow reconcile 400 million years of failure to evolve a relatively modest innovationógrowth on ligninówith a long list of spectacular innovations thought to have evolved in a fraction of that time.

Exactly! And if flight appeared several times, why didn't humans evolve it by now? Because evolution doesn't work and the designer doesn't want us to fly, that's why.

An interview with Matti Leisola in Creation Ministries International here.

ETA: My emphasis

Because with God, most things are impossible.

Lignin digestion, native radio communication between intelligent brains (why don't we have some sort of ESP?), and getting beyond the limits of evolution.

Evolution, by contrast, has no limits. †The IDiots themselves have said so over and over again, and they wouldn't be wrong.
