Gene gun inventor John Sanford on what Darwin got wrong
|August 26, 2013||Posted by News under Cornell Conference, Genetics, News, Video|
Recently, we featured the now-published introduction to genetic theory at the Origin of Biological Information conference (Cornell 2011) by gene gun inventor and ID-friendly plant geneticist John Sanford (abstract and excerpt) . Here’s a vid of explaining “How Darwin Got It Wrong” in genetics:
Actually, Darwin didn’t know much about genetics, in the sense in which the term is used today. No one did in those days. And yes, Sanford is a creationist, but listen for yourself and judge.
A key difficulty with evolution theories based on Darwin (and make no mistake, that’s the majority*) is that such theories are based on an outdated view of how things work, but millions of people now make their living, in whole or in part, fronting such a view.
And we are not here talking about ridiculous stuff like the organized Darwin-in-the-schools lobby, legends in their own minds.
Just what we should do now is not for people who just can’t stand hearing a mob say bad things about them. If that is the worst you encounter, you will be doing well.
