“The Scientific Case Against Darwinism Is Largely Won”

Here’s a note from a senior biologist colleague (not Behe, not Minnich, not anybody widely known for his views on ID) regarding Darwinism:
It is important to make clear that there are two distinct parts of the issue, the scientific and the metaphysical. The scientific case against Darwinism is largely won. Evolutionary theory is constrained to a small part of biology. It is irrelevant to most of the life sciences. Most life science researchers know that. They constantly express surprise at new discoveries that were not expected based on evolutionary theory (e.g., the fugu genome or the bird-like mammal, the platypus, to name two for this week). They don’t use concepts in evolutionary biology in their research except in unusual cases. The metaphysical part is the worldview aspect, and that is what causes most of the pushback from Darwinists and the scientific establishment.
