If a theory claims to be able to explain some phenomenon but does not generate even an attempt at an explanation, then it should be banished. Despite comparing sequences, molecular evolution has never addressed the question of how complex structures came to be. In effect, the theory of Darwinian molecular evolution has not published, and so it should perish.
Yes, it’s the prominent IDist Behe who wants to banish evolution.
Of course he’s wrong about evolution’s explanatory ability, while ID has none whatsoever. By Behe’s standard, ID definitely deserves banishment, although I would not go that far.
To be sure, an idea like ID that never has–and never could–address the origin of complex structures has no business being called science.
Not that it's anything new or different, but I shouldn't let them off for not posting my comment. It should have been #40, and two later comments have been published (at two different times) while mine was not:
It's perhaps a possibility that they might yet publish my comment, when it will be lost among enough previous posts--a smothering operation that they've used in the past when they didn't want to absolutely censor. I do doubt it, though, especially since most of the comments on the blog are quite favorable.
They seem to be more blatant in censoring than they were in the past, probably because they're trying to sell their dishonest product, and so do not want honest comments on their site (save a few to give the illusion that they're not doing what they illegitimately condemn).
Yes, it matters little enough, for they've long showed how sleazy their characters are. But this censorship is a fitting end to a long string of lies.
Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of coincidence---ID philosophy
