Another review of Wolfe. There’s no attack and no reference to natural selection. The paradigm is ashifting…
The question of Chomsky is simple: his idea of recursive structures is entirely cogent but since we don’t know if it is right or have a theory of language evolution, it is up in the air, and probably Everett is not without justice in picking off Chomsky’s ‘bon idee’, no more.
As to darwinism, Wolfe is on stronger grounds but doesn’t close in for the kill. He evades the probable plagiarism by Darwin of Wallace (the greatest suppressed scandal in science), doesn’t really dwell on the key point: Darwin’s theory is pseudo-science. Natural selection doesn’t work. Over and out. It doesn’t matter what a hoard of sophistical biologists say, the statistics of biochemical structure change rules out random evolution. Wolfe is thus more than justified in his attack.
