Charles Darwin died on April 19, 1882 and he was buried in Westminster Abbey on Wednesday, April 26, 1882.
The IDiots have just realized that Darwin is dead. Tonight they will celebrate the event by presenting four discoveries that are not very well explained by Darwin's original theory of natural selection, published in 1859. (That's 151 years ago.) The "four nails" will be revealed at an event being held at Southern Methodist University.
I predict these "nails" are either gross misunderstandings of real science or discoveries that are explained by modern evolutionary theory. I'm pretty confident about this prediction since I know the reputation of the four hammers at the conference. They are ...
Douglas Axe, who thinks that the evolution of new protein folds is impossible.
Richard Sternberg, worries about what a gene is and about the relationship between genotype and phenotype.
Jonathan Wells, who's fond of making up elaborate tales about why evolution is wrong.
Stephen Meyer, who thinks that 2oth1 century biochemistry and molecular biology disprove evolution.
I wonder if we're going to get any honest reporting on this event or whether journalists will rely entirely on DISCO press releases?
1. No, this is not a mistake. Meyer hasn't yet made it into this century. Neither have the other IDiots.
