Nothing is ever settled in Darwinian history. That’s part of the genius of Darwin’s strategy for secular science: it provided job security for storytellers (25 June 2014). Since human imagination is boundless, Darwin put it to work overcoming the challenges of empirical proof. Data points like genes, rocks, fossils and embryos are the playthings of those engaged in “fun scenarios” (25 Aug 2020) of what might have happened—and must have happened—in a universe without intelligent design.
They have gotten mighty skilled at it. There is no anomaly that a skilled Darwinian storyteller cannot overcome with imagination. In Darwinian science, data points are mere props to rearrange at will in order to maintain the worldview that floats on an ocean of purposelessness. The rules even allow for returning to previous deck-chair patterns. To them, after all, if the ship is going nowhere in particular, one might as well stay occupied with activity that pretends to be designed for a purpose. By agreement, the underlying philosophy (the Stuff Happens Law) cannot be altered (the Law of the Misdeeds and Perversions).David F.

The thing is, any nonsense may be believed if it is given a Darwinian explanation. To those who doubt, we have two words: evolutionary psychology
And few know Darwin’s deck chairs as well as Coppedge, if you followed the story.
