After reading Leisola and Witt’s book, it is clear that a paradigm shift is needed in order to explain the origin and diversity of life, from chemical and Darwinian evolution towards a design explanation. This raises the question of whether the research community is willing to follow the evidence and allow such a shift to take place. If not, there is a great risk that the judgement of future generations will be hard. However, such a change will not come easily, since ultimately our worldview is at stake. – Ola Hössjer, Professor of Mathematical Statistics at Stockholm University More.
Yes, that’s just the point. Darwinism could arguably have explained 1958 biology but not 2018 biology. The entrenchment of the Darwinian old guard is a form of intellectual decay at that point.

Nick Matzke’s research critiqued in Journal of BioGeography Just think: Matzke gets a chance to be dissed under the normal rules he would deny to others.
But things may be changing on him. Recently, it seemed okay for Basener and Sanford to just publish a critique of Fisher’s Darwinian Theorem as well. Is “the Darwinian government” (apparently, the late Jerry Fodor’s words) losing its power? Black hole size void?
