Renowned Ivy League Abandons Darwin Evolution, Embraces Intelligent Design



By: Daniel
August 23, 2019

Renowned Yale University professor, David Gelernter, has abandoned Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution in favor of intelligent design…which is an intelligent decision.

He argues that there are just too many holes in the theory and that it has been too long to even be a plausible scientific theory. Even Darwin himself says that if his theory cannot be proven within 100 years that it should be abandoned.

“Darwin’s theory predicts that new life forms evolve gradually from old ones in a constantly branching, spreading tree of life,” the professor says in the paper. “Those brave new Cambrian creatures must, therefore, have had Precambrian predecessors, similar but not quite as fancy and sophisticated. They could not have all blown out suddenly, like a bunch of geysers.”

“Each must have had a closely related predecessor, which must have had its own predecessors.”

“I have to distinguish between the way I’ve been treated personally, which has been a very courteous and collegial way by my colleagues at Yale, they’re nice guys and I like them, they’re my friends,” he said.

“On the other hand, when I look at their intellectual behavior, what they publish, and, much more important, what they tell their students, Darwinism has indeed passed beyond a scientific argument. As far as they are concerned, take your life in your hands to challenge it intellectually. They will destroy you if you challenge it.”

What would a computer science PhD know about evolution? Do you also value Art major opinions on physics? Galaxies aren't pretty enough, so they must actually be cottage cheese smeared across the heavens.

This is typical conservashit.

Not to mention the misleading title, which directly implies that all of "Ivy League" has decided Darwin's theories are bunk.

And I am reminded of other conservative professors pass judgement on scientific issues about which they have no expertise.

But look how the LNF cons lap it up.

What else is left but to abandon the hope of truth and content ourselves instead with stories. In these stories it doesn't matter who the heroes are. All we want to know is who is to blame. - V.

Its another theory. It doesn't prove evolution wrong. God creating life is theory. It has holes all though it too. But much bigger holes.

I believe an intelligence is behind all creation.

And I likewise believe this headline is misleading. I was actually going to post that very thing, but you beat me to it.

Usually you and I are on opposite sides when it comes to complaining about misleading headlines. Don't let my pedantry rub off on you!

I didn't post because it was obviously a troll thread, just like all of stu's posts.

It took less than a minute of research to figure out the headline wasn't truthful.

I have never seen any proof of a higher "intelligence" behind the universe. I cannot say it doesn't exist, either. The mechanics of chemistry and physics explain much of how our world works, but not necessarily how the entire package got started, and what its overall limits are, if any. It is a subject that fascinates me, but also one that defies any firm conclusion.

My policy, borne out of habit posting on better websites than LNF, is to quote verbatim, subject to the character space limits of the platform, the title of a linked and quoted article as closely as possible. When the article's title is clearly misleading, I will endeavor to add that qualification to the body of the OP.

It's my understanding, from having worked in journalism in university, that most headlines are not written by an article's author, but by their editor. Thus the article title may diverge from the content. In the days before the Internet, article titles were generally short and succinct, due primarily to space limitations. Now they can be complete sentences which necessarily presents challenges when they are referenced in a thread. Still, I much prefer not further prejudicing the thread by substituting my own title, which might well irritate more pedants than simply quoting as much of the original title as fits.
