Senapathy's idea of the Independent Birth of Organisms
Posted in the Evolution Debate Forum

I have subscribed to Darwinism until I came across the ideas of Senapathy. I wondered then and now whether if Darwin was a prisoner of the thinking of his days, as we all are, of a single Deity or God.
However, If Senapathy is a atheist and molecular biologist and is not a creationist as is said by some of his critics, then why a single primordial pond? I am not an evolutionary biologist and so cannot argue with ‘facts’, but I am well versed with the concept of a scientific paradigm. I do not oppose Senapathy’s ideas as I would consider myself an evolutionary skeptic. Another problem idea I have are the echoes of Eugenics with the concept of ‘Natural Selection’ and how it had the support of luminaries such as Fisher, and Churchill. I also know that to change a current paradigm requires very strong ideas, and evidence. I am not certain that Senapathy has supplied both. It also contrasts with the way “The Origin of Species” sold out and went into reprint so quickly. Was there a hunger for new ideas in those days? Can more knowledgeable people please enlighten me?

No problem, Shadow. You're both still cranks.
