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.
