Denyse O’Leary has an interesting post on Michael Medved’s interview with Michael Behe, Ph.D.1 Naturalistic evolutionists love to hate Behe. This, even though he agrees with common descent. Darwinists have displayed their maturity level on a number of occasions.2,3
“At what point in your academic career, did you begin to feel that the standard explanation of random purposeless natural selection might have some problems.”
“I remember it pretty clearly. It was late 1980s. I was tenured associate professor at Leheigh. I believed pretty much the standard story of evolution. … I read a book called Evolution: A theory in crisis. … Denton at the time was an agnostic. … He was, at the time, just tired of what he saw as large problems with evolution. … I was shocked, because I had never heard a scientist challenge Darwin’s theories. …”
O’Leary also references the fact that men like big….er…well, because evolution makes us.4 So, next time you get smacked for staring when you shouldn’t, blame evolution (“I’m sorry honey….My genes made me do it.” Yeah, that’d work for me. I’d get smacked twice as hard.).
Until very recently, it was a mystery to evolutionary psychology why men prefer women with large breasts, since the size of a woman’s breasts has no relationship to her ability to lactate. But Harvard anthropologist Frank Marlowe contends that larger, and hence heavier, breasts sag more conspicuously with age than do smaller breasts. Thus they make it easier for men to judge a woman’s age (and her reproductive value) by sight-suggesting why men find women with large breasts more attractive.
