Alice In Wonderland

The debate is over.
Thus we are told by the Darwinian establishment. Of course, the debate is not over by definition, because debate continues. What this really means is that “evolution” is a fact, and the “fact” of evolution does not mean that living things have changed over time, but that the Darwinian mechanism of random errors (of any kind imagined or unimagined) filtered by natural selection can explain everything in the history of life, including the most sophisticated computer program ever devised, which is engendered in every cell of every living creature.
I am one of those rare people who has actually read the attempts of Darwinists to refute Behe’s irreducible-complexity argument, and the so-called refutations are always the same: thoroughly speculative fantasies about “co-option” that don’t withstand even the most trivial analytical scrutiny, and protein-sequence similarities that are perfectly irrelevant to the question at hand.
Yet, we are told that these completely unsupported speculations have closed the case, even though they are obviously incredible on any grounds of rationality or evidence. Furthermore, we are told that anyone who challenges these speculations is “an enemy of science.”
Darwinism is a bizarre Alice-in-Wonderland fantasy, completely dislocated from modern scientific and empirical reality, down a rabbit hole where as many as six impossible things are believed before breakfast — and sold as scientific fact.
