One Side Can Be Wrong

One Side Can Be Wrong
Dawkins & Coyne (The Guardian)
There is no evidence in favor of intelligent design: only alleged gaps in the completeness of the evolutionary account, coupled with the “default” fallacy we have identified. And, while it is inevitably true that there are incompletenesses in evolutionary science, the positive evidence for the fact of evolution is truly massive, made up of hundreds of thousands of mutually corroborating observations. These come from areas such as geology, paleontology, comparative anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, ethology, biogeography, embryology and—increasingly nowadays—molecular genetics.

There are some genuine “arguments worth having” mentioned at the end.

I know I’m late; I’m catching up.
