Evolutionist: “Evolutionary Processes Not Fully Understood”
Teleology to the Rescue
Frauke Gräter’s latest paper on how the speed of protein folding evolved begins by stating that the disparity in protein folding times (from microseconds to hours) is the result of roughly 3.8 billion years of evolution during which new protein structures were created and optimized. No citation is given because no citation is available. As usual, evolutionists begin their work with non scientific premises. As if sensing a problem the paper next offers a partial concession: “The evolutionary processes driving the discovery and optimization of protein topologies is complex and remains to be fully understood.” In fact not only do these evolutionary processes remain to be “fully understood,” they remain to be understood at all. Not to worry though, because evolutionists can always switch to a teleological tone whenever they have dug themselves into a hole, as the paper next explains: “Nature probably uncovers new topologies in order to fulfill new functions, and optimizes existing topologies to increase their performance.” Such design language masks, at least temporarily, the obvious problems with evolution’s creation-by-chance narrative. Biology’s incredible structures arose to fill a need. That certainly sounds better than explaining that a whole bunch of random mutations just happened find an astronomically unlikely design for no reason.
