Intelligent Reasoning

Promoting, advancing and defending Intelligent Design via data, logic and Intelligent Reasoning and exposing the alleged theory of evolution as the nonsense it is. I also educate evotards about ID and the alleged theory of evolution one tard at a time and sometimes in groups

Evolution is NOT Blind? Does Neil Rickert Support ID?

Neil Rickert said something that resonates with IDists:
I would not say “blind evolution was responsible.” And that’s because evolution is not blind. It cannot forsee[sic] the future, but it is adaptive to the present.
That isn't how evolution is promoted by evolutionary biologists. All mechanisms of evolution are both blind and mindless according to the experts. Only ID posits evolutionary mechanisms that are not blind and not mindless.

Neil is simply wrong but he will never admit it. Evolution is what you get when there is a change in allele frequency- it is a result just like natural selection. Evolution is the result of descent with modification.

The way evolution is being taught mutations just happen, they are blind to the needs of the organism (present and future needs). If a mutation or mutations just happen to produce some adaptive advantage then so be it. It wasn't trying to do so, it just happened. Contingent serendipity.

As Jerry Coyne wrote: 
Natural selection and evolution: material, blind, mindless, and purposeless

Neil Rickert doesn't know what he is talking about when it comes to science and evolution. But that is par for the course over on TSZ.
