Over at Design Matrix, in “First questions about LECA” (July 22, 2011), Mike Gene offers,
We have seen that science has discovered the last eukaryotic common ancestor was essentially as complex as a modern day eukaryotic cell (see here and here and here).
Okay, so in that respect, evolution did not happen. Can we get past that fact, or are we still stuck with funding propaganda from the Darwin lobby?
Furthermore, I have argued that this complex cell plan that has defined eukarya since the time of LECA has worked to facilitate the eventual emergence of metaozoan-type complexity.
So it was a design matrix? Evolution with a purpose?
Question: Why isn’t this guy testifying at the Texas school board hearings?
