American Thinker Mag Recognizes Marcos Eberlin


Marcos Eberlin is an accomplished Brazilian scientist who is sympathetic to design in nature:

Something is changing in our society, that it is becoming respectable to make these kinds of points, and not from a pulpit (which isn’t really the right venue anyway):

Dr. Marcos Eberlin, a physical chemist who specializes in spectrometry and supervises a large lab in Brazil that has produced hundreds of doctoral-level scientists, is former president of the International Mass Spectrometry Foundation and author of more than 1,000 research papers. He has written a book that makes a strong case for another nail in the coffin of Darwin’s theory of evolution of species…

t is magical thinking to propose that random genetic mutations or changes (Darwin knew nothing of genetics) occurring over eons are going to produce essential large complex molecules (Darwin knew nothing of molecules) that arrive at the right place and right time to interact with other large, complex just-right functional molecules when all the molecules have to have all their hundreds of amino acids in the right order and the proper right-left orientation (all amino acids are right or left) to produce functional advantages to survival for the organism.

There is no excuse for ignoring what is apparent, as the author points out: “This book has pointed out many clever mechanisms of life. But they are not merely clever. They are not just advantages. . . they are ‘primordial musts,’ features needed from the start for the organisms possessing them to survive and thrive. Think about it next time you hear some Darwinist waxing eloquent on how random variations can produce a complex functionality that cannot be duplicated by men.”

I'll probably order a copy of his book, but Behe has already convinced me with his 2 books. As I've written, my favorite is still Blood Clotting. You either got it or you ain't, and ALL of the intermediate possibilities (e.g., clotting but no clotting prevention in normal operation) kill you deader than a door nail. vmahuna
