Gary,

Please explain (simply) how

<blockquote>Gross imperfection at the molecular level presents a conundrum for the traditional paradigms of natural theology as well as for recent assertions of ID, but it is consistent with the notion of <b>nonsentient contrivance by evolutionary forces</b>.</blockquote>

Unless you choose to argue that evolution is an intelligence, then this paper doesn't help you.

I would personally argue that evolution is a design system and I think that most here would agree provided that 'design' is defined very specifically.  But it sure isn't intelligent.

As far as this paper, you might consider that it's something called a "review paper".  You not being familiar with scientific publishing, I will explain.

In this paper, the author does no unique experiments or observations.  Instead, the author collects the research from other unique experiments/observations and combines related ones into a single paper.  

These are very good for showing things like safety of GM organisms or why "intelligent design" isn't.

It really doesn't help you.  I'll also point out that, unlike your paper, this one is concise, explains itself very well, and has copious references to the actual experiments and observations that support the statements in the paper (something you really ought to consider).

I don't know why I'm explaining this to you, I know you don't care to actually understand what science really is.

Ignored by those who can't provide evidence for their claims.
