Jonathan MCLatchie gives in:
"News" links to an article he wrote on ENV (Nice Try! A Review of Alan Rogers's The Evidence for Evolution) where he finally quits to pretend he is all sciencey and stoops to the old canard "Either it's change within kind, or it is divine intervention" - of course his vocabulary is more refined than mine.
Some tidbtits (not quotes):
- Whales couldn't have evolved within this short time-span.
- Tiktaalik is younger than footprints found elsewhere - gasp! (Joe's favourite argument)
- Same introns can't be used as evidence for common descent.
- The eye is too complicated to have evolved.
Favourite reference for his claims is - wait for it! - Casey Luskin. For heaven's sake, McLatchie is a biology student - why would he need Luskin?
|... the grander claim of universal common ancestry is not justified, nor does the author impart confidence in the adequacy of the neo-Darwinian mechanism.|
Barry Arrington is a bitch.
