That is a cool depiction of the shrub of life. Thanks for sharing, oldman.
As I understand KF's concepts of body plans and islands of functionality, there must be spots in that shrub where evolution as it is generally understood (that is, without interference from a designer) could not have traveled the path that the chart indicates.
Even if he rejects the entire shrub for other reasons, say the "unreliability" of dating methods, those concepts imply that there must be some impossibilities in the shrub.
I'm pretty sure he would place the unbridgeable gap somewhere between molecules and man. Has he ever narrowed it down further?
Where is the spot where evolution says that one body plan birthed another?
Perhaps only "additional" ID research will make it possible to narrow it down.
Speaking for myself, I have long been confused . . .-Denyse O'Leary
