I checked that link to Hogan's site regarding the deficiencies of natural
selection, which John posted a few days back. It's a forum of religious
types, all harping on about how "that can't possibly work, nah", and lots of
mojambo about mutation taking too long. Blech.

I have some qualified respect for those who say that natural selection might
not be the whole answer. However, the burden of proof/evidence is upon them
at this point; they must show in convincing ways that natural selection has
flaws or is too weak, and make at least some cogent argument as to the
alternative, tangible mechanism.
