A evolução da evolução

‘It must be significant that nearly all the evolutionary stories I learned as a student, from Trueman’s Ostrea/Gryphaea to Carruthers’ Zaphrentis delanouei, have now been “debunked”. Similarly, my own experinece [sic] of more than twenty years looking for evolutionary lineages among the Mesozoic Brachiopoda has proved them equally elusive.’

    O próprio refuta isto melhor que eu:

    “For a century and a half the geological world has been dominated, one might even say brain-washed, by the gradualistic uniformitarianism of Charles Lyell. Any suggestion of ‘catastrophic’ events has been rejected as old-fashioned, unscientific and even laughable. This is partly due to the extremism of some of Cuvier’s followers, though not of Cuvier himself.

    On that side too were the obviously untenable views of bible-oriented fanatics, obsessed with myths such as Noah’s flood, and of classicists thinking of Nemesis. That is why I think it necessary to include the following ‘disclaimer’: in view of the misuse that my words have been put to in the past, I wish to say that nothing in this book should be taken out of context and thought in any way to support the views of the ‘creationists’ (who I refuse to call ‘scientific’).” [Ager’s emphasis]

    Rui,
    ele não refutou o que ele disse. Dizer-se que todas as evidências que ele foi ensinado numa altura foram descartadas noutra altura,não é refutado com o “disclaimer” de que ele não quer mal citado pelos criacionistas.
    Num ponto ele fala em como as supostas evidências foram sendo cientificamente refutadas, e nouto ponto ele fala sobre o uniformitarianismo e o catastrofismo.

Todos os comentários contendo demagogia, insultos, blasfémias, alegações fora do contexto, "deus" em vez de Deus, "bíblia" em vez de "Bíblia", só links e pura idiotice, serão apagados. Se vais comentar, primeiro vê se o que vais dizer tem alguma coisa em comum com o que está a ser discutido. Se não tem (e se não justificares o comentário fora do contexto) então nem te dês ao trabalho.
