David Klinghoffer reviews Francis Collins’s new book The Language of God:
. . . Collins’s book rejects Intelligent Design as an “argument from personal incredulity.” That argument, in his telling, would go this way: We don’t understand exactly how the Darwinian mechanism could have produced certain aspects of biological information; therefore, a Designer must have done it. I believe Collins misrepresents Intelligent Design, and it appears that he hasn’t followed the latest rounds in the scientific debate. But never mind. Let’s assume he’s right and ask: If Darwinism is the true resolution of the “mystery of mysteries,” where does that leave God? . . .
Incredulity suggests disbelief in the face of overwhelming evidence. But if there is no evidence period that the Darwinian mechanism can produce certain forms of biological complexity, then where’s the incredulity? In place of incredulity we should be talking about skepticism in the face of overwhelmingly inflated claims by Darwinists?
