Keep up, chaps

Interesting thing – the ENCODE results were announced 6 days ago. Everyone’s talking about them. Except BioLogos, which hasn’t mentioned anything about them yet. Nobody’s written about James Shapiro yet, either, even though his book came out last year and has earned him a regular column at  Huffington Post. There have been five articles on Junk DNA this year alone, however.

Oddly pedestrian, for an organisation started by the head of the cutting edge Human Genome Project, don’t you think?

    The shrieking absence of Shapiro from BioLogos is a mystery of all mysteries, the arch-conundrum of our age (other than Bigfoot). Isn’t there anyone with any influence on BioLogos who can persuade them to give his ideas an airing? Shapiro’s, not Bigfoot’s.

    Maybe they’re afraid of giving aid and comfort to Creationists – that was a fear cited by Hornspiel in a comment about Alvin Plantinga’s series on BioLogos.

    Show that there is no scientific basis to exclude divine action and you’re at fault for encouraging anti-science Fundamentalists. The fact that you’re mainly correcting a two-century old theological error makes no difference, it seems!
