Is it ignorant arrogance or bold bluff? ("The Origin of Life... Through Chemistry" March 2006)

The "golly gee" declaration that "Some types of molecules outcompeted other molecular chains for the planet's resources and gradually led to the kind of molecules that life depends upon..." is no logical threat to the intelligent design movement. Rather it is the kind of science fiction that evolutionists typically use as a smoke screen. In a perfect world it would get what it deserves, a scientific rebuttal. But that is the very thing that academia, the media and the courts have steadfastly opposed. Why?? What are they afraid of?
