The Altenberg 16 – What Exactly Are They Doing In There?

leave a comment »

This is a great read

Trust me on this – they will remain materialist and quite naturalist.  They will claim this is just a natural progression of scientific theory and that materialism is still strong as an ox.  But will they throw Darwin under the bus?  My guess is no, but the Altenberg 16 signify something we have not seen in the public eye for decades, and that is a reigning scientific paradigm in real struggle and self-critique…from the inside.  Still, folks such as Richard Dawkins and his “tiny, almost impercetible change” mantra will most certainly persist, but this meeting, with these scientists, should at least put to rest that tired old “evolution is no more controversial among scientists than [insert favorite physics experiment here] line.
