This is only a fraction of the new papers on research in evolutionary biology from the last week or so. How many creationist papers have been published in the same time-span?
  • POPULATION SUBDIVISION AND ADAPTATION IN ASEXUAL POPULATIONS OF SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE
  • THE EFFECT OF A COMPETITOR ON A MODEL ADAPTIVE RADIATION
  • The Evolution of Patch Selection in Stochastic Environments
  • Local Adaptation along Smooth Ecological Gradients Causes Phylogeographic Breaks and Phenotypic Clustering
  • Tradeoffs limit the evolution of male traits that are attractive to females
  • THE GENETIC ARCHITECTURE OF A COMPLEX ECOLOGICAL TRAIT: HOST PLANT USE IN THE SPECIALIST MOTH, HELIOTHIS SUBFLEXA
  • Ecological and evolutionary dynamics of coexisting lineages during a long-term experiment with Escherichia coli
We may, as evolutionists (a term that I take to mean those who believe in evolution*) be frustrated with creationists, because they so incessantly refuse to give up dogma and take the evidence from nature at face value.
However, some years ago I realized how much more frustrating it must be for the creationists that the experts all but a few loonies believe in evolution, that all the evolution research in universities confirms evolution, and that nearly everyone who aren't a creationist because of their religious beliefs believe in evolution. The creationists (at least the ones who aren't ignorant and boneheaded) know that the evidence is on our side, and that must be excruciatingly frustrating.
