Para: Behe was taught by an academic elite that believed that evolutionary theory was superior to design theory, so he has a hard time accepting that common descent is not true (which I know from the frequent conversations we have had).


ParaL Yet just as his work proves that abiogenesis is false, it also proves that common descent is false.

Not really.

Para: My work and the work of my colleagues here and elsewhere supports that conclusion, but we cannot publish it safely for fear of loosing our positions and reputations. That's all there is to it. End of discussion.

Indeed, you lack evidence supporting your assertions. No wonder you are hiding in anonymity.
