Re: Logic and reality please.
|If a system can be shown to have evolved by a series of step changes (which is what the above demonstrates) then by definition it is NOT IC|
Those who are attempting to push IC have been careful not to define IC as "cannot evolve by a series of step changes". So your statement is wrong.
What they have done is assume that IC systems, defined in various other ways, cannot evolve. So if they demonstrate that a system is IC by whatever definition they use, that leads to the conclusion that is cannot have evolved.
Hall's experiments demonstrated that a system that is IC by Behe's original definition can evolve.
That's one reason Behe changed his definition to one for which it is impossible to figure out if a sytem is IC.
