... Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects The shorter, the stranger Just a few months ago (in SF#85), we held forth on biology's Big Bang: that Cambrian paroxysm of biological creativity about 570 million years ago. Until now, biologists had opined that this "explosion" required a rather leisurely 20-40 million years (still very short in geological terms) ... After all, biological creativity must take time if it is powered only by stepwise random mutations. But the recent dating of Cambrian formations in northeastern Siberia (which was previously off limits to Western scientists because of its Soviet radar installations) has now compressed this great event to a veritable flash.

... must be called an admissible possibility) also turns out, for events of this kind, to look hopelessly unbelievable. The dismaying implications is that there must be, in real biology, some third mode of causation for such events-- one that is not strictly mechanical, yet not strictly unnatural either. I cannot pretend to comprehend such a paradoxical tertium ... , but it looks as though we really stand in need of such a fundamental quantum or "Einsteinian" revolution in our overly simplistic conceptions of what is possible in biological systems. Certain thinkers, whose efforts we apparently have to take seriously, are currently trying to puzzle out how this "necessary paradox" might conceivably be elucidated-- though no one ... was not aware that he had been influenced by Samuel Butler. I suspect that Butler has had more influence in scientific circles than is generally believed, particularly in England. Mainstream biologists, however, are understandably reluctant to mention him with favor.

... in comparative anatomy. If the bones of the human arm could be traced to the wing of the bat and hoof of the horse, then the miraculous new science of molecular biology would trace the homologies in DNA codes that expressed these physical characteristics. At long last, biologists were on the brink of opening Pandora's box and finding inside the final key to ... evolution, for common descent and for Darwinian processes of mutation and natural selection, is that of homology. Homology is the name given to the anatomical correspondences between different species that biologists and paleontologists have noted and studied for centuries. Darwin himself explained the significance of homology with eloquent simplicity in The Origin of Species when he said; 'We have seen that the ... is there for claiming such a relationship with the bat or the porpoise or the horse? The only honest answer is 'none'. There are even worse problems. Australian molecular biologist Michael Denton has pointed out that if the doctrine of homologous structures were valid, then it would apply not merely to developed organs like the hand, but would also apply to ...

... trial and error.... We describe here a few experiments and some circumstantial evidence suggesting that bacteria can choose which mutations they should produce."

But merely ... only printed the critical letters, Cairns had been contacted by other researchers with similar beliefs and in view of the fact that scientists now know "that, in the processing of biological information, almost anything is possible.... it should not be difficult for an organism to devise a way of testing phenotype (newly adapted characters) before adopting any ... with bacteria there is always the let out that the results do not apply to higher organisms. However, it is precisely because of studies of the mutation rates in bacteria that biologists have come to believe that 'mutations arise continuously and without any consideration for their utility'.

40. Whimsical Aspects of Scientific Theory [Catastrophism Geology $]
... 1 (June 1976) Home¦ Issue Contents Whimsical Aspects of Scientific Theory Norman MacBeth Springfield, Vermont, U. S. A. My training was in law rather than biology, but around 1960 I began to study Darwinian evolution theory and since that time I have read about three hundred pounds of biological literature. The bulk of this concerned plants and ... , but a good deal of it dealt with theory, with the proper formulation of and attitude toward theory. I found some strange and puzzling things that one would never have expected among sober scientists. Here are some of the most striking. 1. Best-in-field is good enough. Darwinism has had to compete with various rival theories, the most famous of ... . H. Huxley pointed to glaring flaws in Spencer's own arguments. He might be weak, but his rival was weaker. This tactic is not a monopoly of evolutionists or biologists. Harlow Shapley, the astronomer, asserted that cosmic evolution was a good hypothesis because "no other supposition is at this moment tenable." C. W. Ceram, ...
