Darwin and gays, and the BBC
|February 22, 2014||Posted by News under Darwinism, Culture, News|
Further to (evolutionary biologist) “Larry Moran suddenly discovers an absolute moral value,” here’s a BBC News article bending itself in knots over “the evolutionary puzzle of homosexuality,” learning and passing on nothing in particular.
Some puzzles exist only if one is in the grip of a mistaken idea. Darwin’s followers Darwinize everything, so they must somehow explain how homosexuality fits their theory. On other views of how evolution works, evolution proceeds by a variety of mechanisms: There is no fixed way an average number of homosexual members affects the evolution of a human group over time; it varies by circumstances. And that’s pretty much what comes out in the article.
But no matter we certainly cannot expect the logical conclusion, that Darwin’s mechanism is not what the typical BBC science writer believes, to be drawn. Too risky.
