People to watch for at Royal Society meet


The Paradigm Shifters: Overthrowing 'the Hegemony of the Culture of Darwin'From Third Way:

Below, you will find a list of researchers and authors who have, in one way or another, expressed their concerns regarding natural selection’s scope and who believe that other mechanisms are essential for a comprehensive understanding of evolutionary processes. More.

A lot of scientists are listed. In the context, the putdowns by Darwinists in previous years are, um, interesting: The Third Way of Evolution announced, but fails to cohere (2015), written by someone at Panda’s Thumb. Arrogance always sounds far more pronounced in retrospect. Will they try getting some US court to rule against the Royal Society or the Third Way?

Note: The Third Way site was created by Raju Pookottil, profiled in The Paradigm Shifters, a good introduction to the topic.

Interesting, an atheistic neo-Darwinist troll on a blog, (who has nothing comparable in the way of credentials to the scholars of the Third way, and apparently without even bothering to read their extensive work in which they list pages and pages of experimental support), demands evidence from the scholars of Third Way that natural selection can't do what it is billed to do, whilst they, and every other skeptic of neo-Darwinism, await any evidence whatsoever that natural selection can do what it is billed to do. The beam vs. the mote in the eye comes to mind. Of related note:
Experimental Evolution in Fruit Flies (35 years of trying to force fruit flies to evolve in the laboratory fails, spectacularly) - October 2010 Excerpt: "Despite decades of sustained selection in relatively small, sexually reproducing laboratory populations, selection did not lead to the fixation of newly arising unconditionally advantageous alleles.”,,, "This research really upends the dominant paradigm about how species evolve," said ecology and evolutionary biology professor Anthony Long, the primary investigator. https://uncommondesc.wpengine.com/intelligent-design/experimental-evolution-in-fruit-flies/ http://eebweb.arizona.edu/nachman/Suggested%20Papers/Lab%20papers%20fall%202010/Burke_et_al_2010.pdf
rvb8 You've said it so very well I had to comment: deniars = liers. Robert Sheldon
I've read through the list of impressive speakers, and they are impressive. None, however, appear to deny evolution. Some are deniars of the importance of Natural Selection, but until their empirical evidence is produced, that is what they remain; deniars with little else. rvb8
