BACKDATED: Slow news day
So, in the meantime, these are some articles that are more directly anti-Darwin than I usually like to post, but are interesting for the fact that they were published in secular journals by ID'ers or creationists.
- Enzymic editing mechanisms and the origin of biological information transfer - Lambert, a creationist, showed that without complex editting enzymes, the transcription error rate in DNA would cause error catastrophe. However, the editting enzymes are coded for themselves by DNA. Other papers by Lambert (mostly biochemical research) can be found here.
- Simulating evolution by gene duplication of protein features that require multiple amino acid residues - Behe shows the mathematical probability of evolution of new proteins by gene duplication, where the protein would require more than one base pair change. Other papers by Behe (mostly biochemical research) can be found here.
- The Origin of Biological Information and the Higher Taxonomic Categories - a review article discussing the relative merits of various hypotheses upon the origin of the major animal taxonomic groupings. This was pulled after-the-fact from the journal for political reasons (you can't have an openly ID paper in a secular biology journal!) but a review of the peer-review file by others reveals that it did indeed pass peer-review.
My biology news article site has lots of info pertaining to biology news article.
Come visit sometime :)
