Dawkins’ fraudulent ‘rebuttal’ of Hoyle

July 31st, 2011 · No Comments


This article shows how Dawkins has been able to confuse people. indeed, pull the wool over their eyes. As here, with the ridiculous claim that Dawkins answered Hoyle.

He referred to the astronomer, Fred Hoyle’s Boeing 474 argument in which Hoyle suggested that the probability of life originating on earth by pure chance is no greater than the chance that a hurricane, sweeping through a scrapyard, would have the luck to assemble a Boeing 747. Creationists such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses fallaciously argue repeatedly ad nauseam that in order to explain incredibly complex entities, appeal to chance or to creative design are the only available options.

But the Boeing 474 and kindred creationist arguments lose their plausibility after Dawkins showed that the real alternative to design is natural selection, the linchpin of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.
