Walter ReMine on Haldane's Dilemma

* Haldane's Dilemma Unanswered for 50 Years Falsifies Darwinism: Real Science Radio's Bob Enyart and Fred Williams conclude their four-part interview with engineer and information expert Walter ReMine presenting Haldane's Dilemma. (In fact an alias for this page is As addressed in ReMine's classic book, The Biotic Message, Bob, Fred and Walter ReMine describe this "speed limit of evolution" as discovered by a founder of population genetics, J.B.S. Haldane, one of the top evolutionists of the 20th century. While Haldane himself remained an evolutionist till the end, ReMine is credited with doing perhaps more than anyone else to remind the world that in more than half a century of trying, evolutionists have been unable to answer Haldane's unintended falsification of Darwinian evolution.

It is much easier for a mouse to get a set of genes
which enable it to resist Bacillus typhimurium
than a set which enable it to resist cats.
-- J.B.S. Haldane :)

* Haldane Hires Mendel's Accountant: Along with famous Cornell geneticist John Sanford, Walter ReMine was a contributor to an evolution simulator, Mendel's Accountant ( You can use this software simulator to see for yourself some of the severe problems with evolution theory including a mutational lode problem called error catastrophe, i.e., extinction. From the program's website, "Each mutation that enters the simulated population is tracked from generation to generation to the end of the experiment - or until that mutation is lost either as a result of selection or random drift. Using a standard personal computer, the MENDEL program can be used to generate and track millions of mutations within a single population."

* Darwinian Systematics Given Up On In the 1970s: It took over a century for Darwinists to acknowledge that the fossil record does not provide proof of common descent of organisms. Called "the trade secret of paleontology" by renowned evolutionist and Harvard professor of paleontology Stephen Jay Gould, this problem has been extensively and specifically admitted by leading evolutionary scientists (the vast majority of whom, regardless, remained evolutionists). Regarding the Darwinist hope of building a hierarchical evolutionary lineage based on excavated fossils, "Those illusions went down the drain in the mid-1970s," says Walter ReMine, when cladistics and phenetics rose up and took their place.

* Phenetics and Cladistics: Phenograms classify biological entities based on overall organism similarity whereas cladistics looks more at specific anatomical or genetic features and builds charts based on nested features. Bob Enyart's current atheist sparring partner, AronRa, claims that clades show evolution. Here's Bob Enyart's description of the illusion of evolutionary cladistics: 

The clade diagram, drawn like a tree, has hard data at the tips of the tree (i.e., the buds, or leaves). The branches of the diagram that connect those tips are themselves inferred. Thus the branches are not proof of that evolution, but they are merely drawn due to the result of the circular assumption of evolution, masquerading as evidence. Sp the cladogram is an illusion of proof. Again, clade diagrams document a nested hierarchy of features such that the hard science is at the tips of the branches with the branches themselves, right down to the trunk, forming an illusion conjured up by assumptions which are presented as though they were actual data. -Bob Enyart, Real Science Radio

* Haldane Rotating in His Grave: In a high profile debate with creationists, J.B.S. Haldane proposed that evolution could be falsified if "various mechanisms, such as the wheel and magnet, which would be useless till fairly perfect" were found in nature. The gear image to the right is a photograph of parts of an insect as reported at and in the journal Science. Wheels, magnets, gears, gear wheels, rotary engines, the list of God's creative genius goes on and on! It's too late to pray for Haldane (Mormonism notwithstanding). But we should pray for the evolutionists in our lives, that they would humble themselves to celebrate our awesome creator God!

Oh Yeah, Remember This: Remember when Richard Dawkins, et al., claimed our retinas were wired backward, and then it turned out that it's an optimal design ( Well, the evolutionists would also criticize a particular molecular motor that God designed, referring to dynein as "weak and inefficient". Hubris. Well, researched published in 2013 shows "that a team of dyneins is able to share a load much larger than any one of them can handle, due to the unique ability of each dynein to change gears. Because of this, dyneins do much better at teamwork than other stronger motors that cannot change gears." :)

And Just for Fun: Check out this animation of God's design of a flagellum for movement, and this one is more detailed; and this will help put it together for you. And here's an image of a ribosome, the protein factory that God designed to assemble countless unique proteins in every living cell:
