My recent post here:
- triggered a rather nagging thought in my mind.
If the Intelligent Design camp is all about finding God’s Design in the dramatic jumps from one life form to another … the one argument that “Intelligent Design-ers” can’t really pursue is that speciation is impossible!
Of course, this caveat only applies to those who support the process of common descent over thousands and millions of years. If they really believe God is behind these majestic evolutionary transformations - - then God must be using Speciation to accomplish his ends!
Denton has been heralded as a more reasonable ID supporter… someone who accepts some of the foundations of Evolution. And yet much of his writings dismiss the idea that changes from one species to another is possible at all.
Philosophically speaking, I’m not sure Denton has really come to grips with the logical intersections of his own beliefs.
