The final argument in the AiG article “Three Puzzles Evolution Can’t Solve” comes from cell biologist Nathaniel Jeanson. Remember, we have looked at Kevin Anderson’s argument regarding abiogenesis, and Brian Catalucci’s argument regarding cell “information”.
In the last installment, we looked at creationist Kevin Anderson chucking abiogenesis research without ever really discussing it in the AiG article “Three Puzzles Evolution Can’t Solve.” Now, we turn to Brian Catalucci (the airplane pilot with a master’s degree in computer science and engineering) who is going to tell us about genetic “information”. I very much dislike the term “information” being used in a genetic sense because it usually does not mean anything in particular. Creationists cannot quantify genetic information, they cannot point to where it exists in the genome, etc. Catalucci begins his section in exactly the same way.
I decided to take an article that I encountered on Twitter from the creationist organization Answers in Genesis to task. The article is titled “Three Puzzles Evolution Can’t Solve” and is authored by creationists Kevin Anderson, Brian Catalucci, and Nathaniel Jeanson. Anderson has a Ph.D. in microbiology, Catalucci is an airplane pilot with a master’s degree in computer science and engineering, and Jeanson has a Ph.D. in cell biology. Quite an interesting assortment of individuals. As the original article is quite long, I will split my rebuttal of it into parts. Here, we will look at the intro and Anderson’s section.
