Evolution, Again

See Kumar's excellent counterpoint to our posts Evolution -- with a small e and Mindless Design It Surely Ain't before that. Here's our humble response.

Kumar writes:

.. even though a number of philosophical positions are consistent with biology, the price of buying consistency via an instrumentalist interpretation of biology is higher for theism-—it amounts to arguing that the biological data are systematically misleading. Perhaps that is the case, but theism’s reliance on an argument from silence is an epistemic vice, not an epistemic virtue.
