Kay mentions Gelernter’s recent apostasy and that it was fueled in large part by Stephen Meyer’s book Darwin’s Doubt. While she hasn’t read Meyer’s bestseller yet, she does point to another book by the incomparable journalist and novelist Tom Wolfe, who repudiated Darwinism in his last book The Kingdom of SpeechAndrew McDiarmid , “The Dam Begins to Break: Gelernter’s Apostasy Attracts Mainstream Media Coverage” at Evolution News and Science Today
Okay sure. But there have been shelves of such books. Many are clear and well-written. Massive thought base. So why this, why now?
Something is changing, almost like a tectonic plate moving. People who knew they had to salute Darwin before are now thinking, “Aw, Darwin, what rot!” And note, these are not the raging Woke who would pull down Darwin’s statue because he is dead, white, and male. These are thoughtful people. They can see that he might be reasonable but wrong.
Now, some changes are hardly noticeable because they are so big. Is this one? And what else might we expect?

His book’s title tells you what you need to know. He understands that something is wrong. And his insights into insects’ hive mind are a piece in the puzzle.
Hoover Institution interview with David Berlinski
Mathematicians challenge Darwinian Evolution
The College Fix LISTENS TO David Gelernter on Darwin! It’s almost as though people are “getting it” that Darwinism now functions as an intolerant secular religion. Evolution rolls on oblivious but here and there heads are getting cracked, so to speak, over the differences between what really happens and what Darwinians insist must happen.
