Sixty million proteins working together….the nuttiness of the darwinian paradigm…

I haven’t read all of this review of Wolfe, but the basic thrust is wrong headed from the start. Wolfe is easy to criticize but he braved the Paradigm, and I am surprised how little flack he has taken for it. That’s because the paradigm is shifting, slowly.
First, the defense of Darwin is all very well, but the evidence against him is grim: a must read here is the already classic The Darwin Conspiracy which shows how confusing the record is, but that the case for Darwin’s plagiarism is very hard to evade. But this realization is consistently filtered out of discussion. But beyond that is the weakness of the theory that took Darwin’s name. Wallace quickly moved on. The theory of natural selection just doesn’t work. Consider a story linked to today: http://darwiniana.com/2016/10/04/imagine-60-million-proteins-in-one-cell-working-together-evolution-news-views/. The ID group has eaten Darwin’s lunch on such questions. But it was Fred Hoyle who warned against the absurdity of NS theory, and the evidence of sixty million proteins evolving by chance is just nutty, and yet respectable scientists like Dawkins and Coyne still can’t grasp the situation that has been created…
