Guy who DOESN’T support ID: Genomics has “overturned” Darwin’s iconic Tree of Life
|July 19, 2011||Posted by News under Darwinism, Genomics|
Remember the “Tree of Life” in your public school Darwin Bible?
Okay, so the guy Koonin, who upended it, has made no secret of his intentions:
More: The genomics revolution, Koonin argues,
… effectively overturned the central metaphor of evolutionary biology (and, arguably, of all biology), the Tree of Life (TOL), by showing that evolutionary trajectories of individual genes are irreconcilably different. Whether the TOL can or should be salvaged — and, if so, in what form — remains a matter of intense debate that is one of the important themes of this book. Uprooting the TOL is part of what I consider to be a ‘metarevolution,’ a major change in the entire conceptual framework of biology.
Darwin lobby: At no time did we ever endorse the Tree of Life. Ever.
UD News: This dude safe?
Darwin lobby: At no time did Charles Darwin ever endorse the Tree of Life. Ever.
UD News: Dude needs new identity … ?
Darwin lobby: All together now, reverently,
Living organisms had existed on earth, without ever knowing why, for over three thousand million years before the truth finally dawned on one of them. His name was Charles Darwin. To be fair, others had had inklings of the truth, but it was Darwin who first put together a coherent and tenable account of why we exist. – Richard Dawkins, The Selfish Gene, Chapter 1.
UD News: Stand by for hate onslaught re Koonin dude. Could be the Darwin lobby blames us… yet we wouldn’t even know except someone told us …
