and then endorses darwinian pseudo-science…//A Psychologist Explains the Thinking Error at the Root of Science Denial | Alternet

The attempt to defend science and then turning around and defending darwinism is good way to feed science denial. Surely by this time alternet is aware of the problems with selectionist darwinism, notwithstaning the tenacity of the darwin propaganda machine…

his same type of thinking can be seen among creationists. They seem to misinterpret any limitation or flux in evolutionary theory to mean that the validity of this body of research is fundamentally in doubt. For example, the biologist James Shapiro (no relation) discovered a cellular mechanism of genomic change that Darwin did not know about. Shapiro views his research as adding to evolutionary theory, not upending it. Nonetheless, his discovery and others like it, refracted through the lens of dichotomous thinking, result in articles with titles like, “Scientists Confirm: Darwinism Is Broken” by Paul Nelson and David Klinghoffer of the Discovery Institute, which promotes the theory of “intelligent design.” Shapiro insists that his research provides no support for intelligent design, but proponents of this pseudoscience repeatedly cite his work as if it does.
