When the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved on an expedited basis the use of the Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine anti-malarial drugs in the treatment of coronavirus, it’s doubtful any of the officials involved or the mainstream media journalists reporting the decision realized they were also focusing attention on a key to the case for Intelligent Design (ID) of the universe.
But one journalist, David Klinghoffer, editor of Evolution News (EN), immediately recognized there was more to the story than a potential advance in the war against coronavirus.
“Yes, chloroquine-resistant malarial parasites figure prominently in biochemist and ID proponent Michael Behe’s argument for sharp limits to what unguided Darwinian processes can do. He details that case in his book The Edge of Evolution,” Klinghoffer reports.
Behe discusses with “ID The Future” host Andrew McDiarmid the mutation ceiling with the anti-malarial drugs and the significance of that ceiling possibly being beyond the edge of evolution. You can listen to the entire podcast here.
