WATCH: Renowned Yale Prof Leaves Darwinism, Says Intelligent Design is an ‘Absolutely Serious’ Theory

The Daily Wire’s Amanda Prestigiacomo reports that yet another scientist believes Intelligent Design is an ‘absolutely serious’ theory:

“They will destroy you if you challenge it”

Renowned writer and Yale University professor David Gelernter has turned away from Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, arguing that it has too many holes and has aged out as a probable scientific theory.

The professor also argued that intelligent design is a serious theory that cannot be shooed away by anti-religious sentiment. Furthermore, he lamented the lack of “free speech” concerning theories outside of Darwinism, which has become a “religion” to many academics spanning the various scientific fields.

As highlighted by Rachel Alexander at The Stream, Gelernter outlined his rejection of Darwinian thought in an essay published in the Claremont Review of Books, aptly titled, “Giving up Darwin.”

“Darwin’s theory predicts that new life forms evolve gradually from old ones in a constantly branching, spreading tree of life,” the professor says in the paper. “Those brave new Cambrian creatures must therefore have had Precambrian predecessors, similar but not quite as fancy and sophisticated. They could not have all blown out suddenly, like a bunch of geysers.” He explains, “Each must have had a closely related predecessor, which must have had its own predecessors.”

Among many other reasons, Gelernter also points to the near impossibility of creating a functional stable protein. “Immense is so big, and tiny is so small, that neo-Darwinian evolution is — so far — a dead loss. Try to mutate your way from 150 links of gibberish to a working, useful protein and you are guaranteed to fail. Try it with ten mutations, a thousand, a million — you fail. The odds bury you. It can’t be done.”
