In response to a commenter on the post “Suzan Mazur’s new book: The Paradigm Shifters” (When you see who is listed on the cover, you will definitely want this book), a reader writes,
Science, like living things, changes over time. Who’da thunk it? The “paradigm” is still not shifting towards Christian or any other kind of creationism, though.
Well, first, the changes anticipated were toward ever more Darwinism, Darwinizing everything. See evolutionary psychology and cosmic Darwinism. Darwinism was the single greatest idea anyone ever had, remember?
And so now …
I have no idea what will happen, only that a long-awaited change is underway. Nature permitted a dismissive review of Dawkins’ second instalment on himself, when they might have permitted him an honourable retirement. That alone suggests something is up.
How will it affect creationism? I don’t know. For one thing, the term no longer seems to mean anything in particular:
Then atheist mathematician Peter Woit got called a creationist because he thinks multiverse nonsense is, well, nonsense. As we said at the show trial, “creationist” is the new skeptic.
But now, even Gould is a “creationist” because he doubted crackpot Darwin theories of race. So are all the progressives who have persecuted creationists.
I would just keep up with the news, and wait and see.
