The front lines of the evolution debate lie in the schools, but just here the whole confusion of darwinism and natural selection enters to compromise the confrontation with creationists and the large public that finds ‘evolution’ a stumbling block. As far as can be determined from this article the standard darwinian scenarios is preached with darwinism and evolution collated.
There is a simple way out here: simply teach the factual and empirical history of evolution but remain open about the mechanisms and skip trying to sneak in natural selection.
The fallacies of natural selection have confused generations of students whose grasp of statistics is compromised for good. Hardly educational…

And a bad year for a 19th-century creation myth. It’s understandable that Darwinists are a bit dejected.

Everyone must have known all along that darwinism wasn’t science: the field never received a single nobel prize.
The ID camp has been diligent in critiquing darwinism, but the nature of the design remains obscure: christian stragglers who have skewered the darwinians but failed to really explicate design beyond a reasonable demonstration of its reality. Continue reading “Designs on darwin dummies”
The left is dawdling in the morass of dated and no longer viable legacies: darwinism, historical materialism, marxist theories of history, economic supermuddle…
The question of evolution should be simple empiricism: we see ‘evolution’ in deep time, and that leaves us with a somewhat agnostic view with respect to theory. With ‘evolution’ the forces of propaganda took hold and multiple versions of social darwinism, even on the left, emerged using one of the most imbecile oversimplifications in the history of science.
The result is a zoo list of specimens with PHD’s peddling absurdities…

The challenge to darwinism has been there all along buried by the establishment writers and academics. The question is confused by the issue of intelligent design, but its proponents have at least produced a lot of criticism of darwinism that is sometimes useful. Continue reading ” Dissent over darwinism is entering mainstream…so long to marxism’s darwin dogma, natural selection and class struggle, etc…”
Leisola and Witt also discuss the well-documented pattern of scientists defending an existing paradigm even after fresh discoveries have turned against it.

It is puzzling to see how propaganda so easily ensnared the left on the subject of ‘evolution’. Debriefing natural selection is actually so easy that the result has been the demolition of darwinism by amateurs, while the darwin establishment continues in ignorance, or knowing deception…
That natural selection not only can’t produce ‘evolution’ but can actually ‘undo’ it by degrading complexity (if that is what Behe is saying in his new book) should be…
