Rabbi Avigdor Miller's commentary on current events
Researchers who wrote “design by the Creator” in a [scientific] paper about the function of the human hand have triggered a debate over the quality of editing and peer review at the journal that published it — and ultimately retracted it.
[The paper] includes the sentence, “Hand coordination should indicate the mystery of the Creator’s invention”
Enrico Petretto, a genomics researcher at Imperial College London, wrote: “This is outrageous. If [the publisher] does not do something about it, i.e., ask the authors to retract the paper... I will have no choice but to refrain from considering (i.e., reading, reviewing and citing) papers published in [that journal].”
From Awake My Glory:
Ideologically the theorists claim that everything is the result of accidental gene-mutations, of which the vast majority were useless or harmful; and they lean on the explanation that the process of natural selection "weeded out" the useless mutations and left over only those that had survival value.
Stripped of verbiage, this means... The ear is an accident, the tongue is an accident, the
stomach is an accident, the eye is an accident, the heart is an accident, the brain is an accident, the knee is an accident, muscles are an accident, lungs are an accident, the nervous system is an accident, the kidney is an accident, the liver is an accident, digestion is an accident, the pituitary is an accident, reproduction is an accident, mother's milk is an accident, the DNA replicating system is an accident, an apple is an accident, a seed is an accident, ad infinitum: the blind academicians who today lead the blind masses, see nothing but accident....
They see nothing because they wish to see nothing. Would they choose, they could see everything. The endless panorama of the phenomena has been bestowed to enable men to see the hand of the Great Designer. "G-d made, so that they fear Him" (Koheles 3: 14).
Those who choose not to see cannot claim exemption from this universal obligation. To those who reject the blind and rigid partisanship of the academicians, the phenomena of nature speak clearly and testify to their Creator. Each phenomenon is as accidental as a book (actually, a library of books); like a book, it testifies to its Author, and it was designed to testify to its Author. "All Your works praise You" (TehiIIim 145:10).
