What do IDiots, epigenetics, and Jean-Baptiste Lamarck have in common? Nothing much, actually, but that never stopped the Intelligent Design Creationists before.
For the latest attempt by IDiots to connect epigenetics and Lamarck see: A Bogey Moment with PZ Myers by Cornelius Hunter.
It is interesting to see how evolutionists respond to failures of their theory. For all their talk of following the evidence and adjusting to new data, evolutionists find all kinds of ways to resist learning from their failures. Consider one of the major failures of evolution, its view of the very nature of biological change. Twentieth century evolutionary theory held that biological change is a rather simple process that is blind to the needs of the organism. As Julian Huxley, grandson of Darwin confidant T. H. Huxley, put it, mutations "occur without reference to their possible consequences or biological uses."Now, you might be asking yourself what this has to do with supporting creationism.
Observations have long since been made to the contrary, but evolutionists cast it as the Lamarckian heresy. Researchers knew they should not suggest a correlation between environmental pressure and biological response, as the careers of those who did were ruined.
Good question. It means you're starting to think critically.
