The term refers to the fact that many features of cells simply cannot be the product of Darwinian evolution (a point that is slowly being conceded now). Trying to rectify some known functions of cells with explicitly Darwinian evolution is just a time sink. Some say, of course, that the idea of irreducible complexity (IR) arose from […]

On another thread we have been discussing abiogenesis in particular, but there was also some discussion about the evolution of an irreducibly complex system. Commenter CHartsil indicated that “we actually watched an IC system evolve” in reference to Lenski’s E. coli research. At my request, he has posted a brief summary of the research and […]

We have a g-suit system built into our bodies,

It finally happened. I’ve been nursing along my car’s transmission for several months (careful driving, changing the fluids, etc.), but last week it finally failed completely, with an accompanying whump! and a jerk, and the car had to be towed to the auto repair shop. The initial hope was that a regular tear-down and cleanout, […]

Debating Darwin and Design A dialogue between two Christians 1. Is Intelligent Design science or ‘creationism in a cheap tuxedo’? 21st July 2014 Joshua Gidney – Fourth Response I wish to begin this response by thanking Francis for his refreshingly substantive and engaging rebuttal. I believe that in his critique of ID, he has stepped up several […]

Ewert: If a model is designed to assist the evolution of an irreducibly complex system, it is not a model of Darwinian evolution

Computer models in the literature are not irreducibly complex. An IC model was developed by the author, but it did not evolve.

Ariano Suassuna, a well known Brazilian writer and thinker, offered an example of irreducible complexity to disprove Darwin’s theory of evolution.

Walter Remine mentioned in passing about a parasite that slowly evolved to lose all its organs except for its anus. Unfortunately he didn’t recall the name of the creature or whether he got all the details right, but rather than peppered moths, if that creature really exists, it should be the poster child of Darwinism.

Refereed paper in Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences uses “irreducible complexity” in same sense as ID theorist Behe?
|January 6, 2014||Posted by News under Intelligent Design, Irreducible Complexity, News|
Pitt physicist David Snoke notes, They are using “irreducible complexity” in the same sense as Behe. This is not a case of accidental use of the same phrase to mean something different.

Dr. Behe explains how his research into the complexity of biological systems at the molecular level led him to question the adequacy of the Darwinian paradigm, and why he now believes that the data point towards Intelligent Design.

Wikipedia is known to be Darwin loving, but here is a moment of anti-Darwinian honesty: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetic_redundancy Genetic redundancy is a term typically used to describe situations where a given biochemical function is redundantly encoded by two or more genes. In these cases, mutations (or defects) in one of these genes will have a smaller effect […]
Theistic evolutionist: Can we absolutely prove that the fruit fly with ant decals on its wings could not happen by chance?

Meanwhile, Darwin’s man Jerry Coyne is “too harried to think about alternatives now.”

Bacteria demonstrate intra-species communication that is species specific using a partner with a communication molecule. Bacteria are also “multilingual” with a generic trade language for interspecies communication. Bacteria control tasks by signal producing and receiving receptors with a signal carrier. The tasks bacteria conduct depend on the concentration they sense of self bacteria versus generic […]

Here. Why don’t they just revoke the science creds of anyone who thinks there is more to know than Darwin ((“the best idea anyone ever had”) did? Alternatively, life has moved on.
UD Pro-Darwinism essay challenge unanswered a year later, I: Let’s get the essence of design theory as a scientific, inductive inference straight
Today marks a full year since I issued an open challenge to Darwinists to ground their theory and its OOL extension and root, in light of actually observed capabilities of blind watchmaker mechanisms of chance and necessity through an essay I would host here at UD. The pivot of the challenge is the modern version […]

Behe: Dr. Lacey, most publications consider it responsible journalism to publish letters by well-known advocates of views attacked in articles. Yes, but Lacey can get a salary from suppressing dissent.
