From Cornelius Hunter at ENST:
Who is the author of the following statement?
In contrast [to trait loss], the gain of genetically complex traits appears harder, in that it requires the deployment of multiple gene products in a coordinated spatial and temporal manner. Obviously, this is unlikely to happen in a single step, because it requires potentially numerous changes at multiple loci.
If you guessed this was written by an advocate of intelligent design, such as Michael Behe describing irreducibly complex structures, you were wrong. It was evolutionist Sean Carroll and co-workers in a 2007 PNAS paper.
When a design person says it, it is heresy. When an evolutionist says it, it is the stuff of good solid scientific research. More.
But isn’t that because the Darwinian is allowed to bafflegab his way out of the information dilemma by celebrating the awesome powers of natural selection?
