This is the only way some people can understand the design of life

From Jason Palmer at BBC News:

Protein flaws responsible for complex life, study says

Tiny structural errors in proteins may have been responsible for changes that sparked complex life, researchers say.

A comparison of proteins across 36 modern species suggests that protein flaws called “dehydrons” may have made proteins less stable in water.

This would have made them more adhesive and more likely to end up working together, building up complex function.

The Nterature study adds weight to the idea that natural selection is not the only means by which complexity rises.

There sure isn’t. But one can smell the corruption when the only way to talk about what really happens is “flaws.”

  1. “This would have made them more adhesive and more likely to end up working together, building up complex function.”

    This counts for an “explanation” in some quarters . . .

  2. Those tiny structural errors in proteins are really cool! Look at what they produced:

    (How could any rational person take this nonsense seriously? I’m completely bewildered.)

  3. Well, I must admit that the creativity of the reductionist mind in generating nonsense is certainly much more powerful than the supposed creativity of RV and NS in generating information…

    By the way, can someone explain why so many non design scientists are so active in trying to find evidence that “natural selection is not the only means by which complexity rises”? Wasn’t the darwinian idea of RV + NS the biggest triumph of the modern mind, the insight in whose light all biology makes sense? Has Darwin’s “dangerous idea” lost all its dangerous content, and become obsolete?

    What a pity! Shall we have to stop fighting classical darwinists (who at least had an idea, although a stupid one), and start fighting complete nonsense?
