Microbiologist admits Darwinism’s shortcomings, says we should stick with it for now because …

There’s a difference between a theory being wrong and being incomplete. In science, we cling to incomplete theories all the time. Especially when the alternative is complete ignorance.
No really, BigThink’s Kas Thomas actually admits,
Darwin’s landmark work was called The Origin of Species, yet it doesn’t actually explain in detail how speciation happens (and in fact, no one has seen it happen in the laboratory, unless you want to count plant hybridization or certain breeding anomalies in fruit flies). …
Yes, Darwinism is always promoted on faith; you just don’t expect to hear biologists admit that. Hope this guy’s job is safe. Many places have frozen hiring, now limited to career zombies.
When I was in school, we were taught that mutations in DNA are the driving force behind evolution, an idea that is now thoroughly discredited. The overwhelming majority of non-neutral mutations are deleterious (reducing, not increasing, survival). This is easily demonstrated in the lab.
Yes of course, but those are unspeakable words. Read the rest and note the comments.
Okay. Here’s the problem with his approach, summarized from above: A theory that so consistently misleads as he describes is probably wrong, not just incomplete. It’s like going south when you should be going north. We keep explaining away the discrepancies in landmarks until finally, we just have to stop and ask, “Where exactly are we in relation to our destination?” But then we must begin by acknowledging that “evolution” (Darwinism) is not better than nothing, instead of shutting down online discussion.
Wish the guy luck; he’s into good questions.
