Jerry Coyne- Still Spewing Lies
But I bet he belives his bullshit-
Here are what I see as foundational principles of evolution:
■ Evolution (genetic change in populations) occurred
■ Life originated about 3.5 billion years ago and the original lineage and its descendants split many times, leading to the millions of species alive on Earth today and the many more who have gone extinct
■ (The flip side of the above point): those millions of species have common ancestors, so that any pair of species, no matter what they are, had a common ancestor at some time in the past.
■ Evolutionary change involves the gradual (that is, over tens to millions of years) transformation of populations; it is not instantaneous nor do individuals themselves evolve
■ The appearance of design in nature is the result of natural selection
Umm, Jerry, there still isn't any evidence that natural selection can produce the appearance of design, you are lying, again, as usual.
Also there still isn't any evidence that a prokaryote can "evolve" into something other than a prokaryote- so that would be a problem for your cliam.
Throwing time around is not scientific and if that is all you have, (and it is) then you have nothing.
BTW Jerry, HOW living organisms arose directly impacts HOW they evolved. If the "how" of origins = design, then the subsequent evolution was also by design.
Jerry Coyne, liar for evolutionism....
