Typically, anyone who doesn’t believe it is branded as a religious kook or an idiot.
Richard Neves, a Virginia Tech professor emeritus, has long fought this battle, despite being a nationally recognized scientist with an expertise in mussels.
“Those who are in charge of science in this country,” he said in a telephone interview, “from the National Academy of Sciences on down, they will not allow alternative hypothesis to be presented because their philosophical view is as strong as their scientific view.”
Almost religious in nature?
“It is,” Neves replied. “ . . . just as strong as any other typical religion we can think of. . . they need to have a more open mind and look at the lack of evidence that does not support the neo-Darwinian theory.”
I’ll be that kook too. (Something I’m sure many of you had concluded long ago.) The holes in the theory are just too glaring.
Too glaring if evidence matters.
But like we keep saying, Mark, evidence doesn’t matter. It never did. It’s not even about evidence. It’s about Darwin’s followers’ religion of evolution and its stranglehold on the education system.
On the day evidence ever does matter, the main task will be picking up all the pieces from a grand delusion of the age.
Meanwhile, the question isn’t, does Holmberg still have a job but will he ever have a real career again, if he doesn’t someday soon “see da light” about Darwin’s truth?
On the other hand, if Virginia Heffernan survives, maybe he will too.
Note: Evidence doesn’t matter? Oh, that’s true in cosmology, too
