Dogma Bites Man

"Is the discovery of Tiktaalik a pivotal moment that profoundly shifts the balance in the tension between those who accept evolution and those who question it?" asks Michael Novacek, a curator of paleontology and the provost of science at New York's American Museum of Natural History, in a Time (sub. req.) opinion piece.

"Probably not," says Novacek. "Those who regard creationism as dogma will probably remain unmoved by any manner of scientific evidence. For those who are uncertain, however, the fishapod may be a source of enlightenment, a demonstration that we can recover ancient clues to events clearly predicted by the theory of evolution."
