Hey, new directive from Darwin on High: We all gotta change the way we talk
|March 17, 2011||Posted by O'Leary under Biology, Darwinism|
A friend wants me to know about this latest BioEssays editorial, wailing about the use of teleological language in biology (= it happened so that). As in:
…It is that innocent little word ‘to’ that transforms the meaning, giving enzyme Y the essence of ‘will’ – ‘to’ being short for ‘in order to ‘, or ‘with the purpose of’. Purpose can only be exercised by a supernatural entity in this situation.
Who’s that problem for? You? Me? The author? Darwin?
Get ready to front zillions in taxes and maybe court cases, stopping people expressing themselves in a normal way, for one purpose only: to front Darwinism.
