Propagability of beneficial mutations -- another little-known non-ID challenge to Darwinism
There are some non-ID challenges to Darwinism that have hardly been touched upon in the evolution debate. I have already presented one little-known non-ID challenge to Darwinism -- what I called the "co-evolutionary paradox." Another little-known non-ID challenge to Darwinism is the difficulty of propagation of beneficial mutations in sexual reproduction. This difficulty is discussed in an article titled, "Sexual Reproduction: A Continuing Mystery to Evolutionists." This article presents a lot of good points but unfortunately does not discuss the very important topic of dominant and recessive genes. Nonetheless, this article gives some background in a much-neglected subject. This article obviously has a religious ax to grind, but that does not make the scientific arguments any less valid. The article has a good list of references to articles in prestigious scientific journals.
Also, there is a propaganda campaign to mislead and confuse the public about what ID really is. Falsely equating ID with creationism is only part of this campaign. This campaign also tries to give the false impression that all challenges to Darwinism that are presented in scientific terms are parts of "ID." Nothing could be further from the truth -- as shown in this blog, there are such challenges to Darwinism that have little or nothing to do with ID. This campaign to mislead and confuse the public has intensified as a result of the Kitzmiller v. Dover decision, where ID was the only such challenge that was banned by name (though other such challenges were implicitly banned by the prohibition against "disparaging" or "denigrating" evolution theory).
