New ID-related Research: Wells on the Centriole

Textbook critic Jonathan Wells recently published an article in science journal Rivista di Biologia / Biology Forum, on the role of the centriole in cell division, “Do Centrioles Generate a Polar Ejection Force?”

Wells is best known and most widely denounced for his entirely appropriate criticisms of the distortions and overstatements in science textbook in defense of Darwinian evolution.

It is good to see Wells defended by Dembski .

Dembski, offering an abstract and link, writes, “Of all my colleagues in the ID movement, the one evolutionists slime the most is Jonathan Wells. It is therefore gratifying to see his article on centrioles and their design characteristics (“Do Centrioles Generate a Polar Ejection Force?”) appear in the latest issue of a peer-reviewed biology journal.”

Many Darwinists, stung by Wells’s revelations—which should have been no surprise, given the overall level of nonsense in textbooks ably exposed by Pamela Winnick— have spent a great deal of energy attacking him on the Internet. I suggest they go and try attacking him at Dembski’s blog in particular .... Be sure to tell Dembski you represent the forces of enlightened Darwinism. ... he likes that ... yep, he sure do ...

(Note: Incidentally, I claim the right to simply remove obsessive attacks on any person from my blog, and will not hold a court case about it. If that is your idea of blogging, start your own blog somewhere in Meltdown City, and don’t post here.)
