So a quote from Maxwell offended your refined scientific sensibilites?<quoted text>
A paper from 1873??? Are you shitting me? Next it'll be quotes from the old testament.
Well, let's see...
A S Wilkins, editor of the journal BioEssays commented:
"Evolution would appear to be the indispensible unifying idea, and at the same time, a highly superfluous one."
Wilkins A S, Evolutionary processes: a special issue, BioEssays 22:1051-1052, 2000
And that is not from the Old Testament, in case you are unable to differentiate.
Also, the leading chemist Philip Skell, a member of the National Academy of Sciences, said this in a column he wrote for The Scientist:
"Further, Darwinian explanations for such things are often too supple: Natural selection makes humans self-centered and aggressive, except when it makes them altruistic and peaceable. Or natural selection produces virile men who eagerly spread their seed--except when if prefers men who are faithful providers. When an explanation is so supple that it can explain any behavior, it is difficult to test it experimentally, much less use it as a catalyst for scientific discovery."
Skell, P S, Why do we invoke Darwin? Evolutionary Theory contributes little to experimental biology, The Scientist 19(16):10, 29 Aug 2005.
Skell also wrote a similar article: The Dangers of Overselling Evolution: Focusing on Darwin and his theory doesn't further scientific progress, Forbes magazine, www.forbes.com , 23 Feb, 2009.
Again, neither of these articles appear in the Old Testament.
Dr Marc Kirschner, founding chair of the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School stated:
"In fact, over the last 100 years, almost all of biology has proceeded independent of evolution, except evolutionay biology itself. Molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, have not taken evolution into account at all."
Quoted in the Boston Globe, 23 Oct 2005.
Also not in the Old Testament.
