Guaranteed to enrage Michael Egnor

Most readers probably have heard of Michael Egnor, the DI's pet neurosurgeon. Egnor has been harping on about what he perceives as the lack of utility of evolution - which he, of course, equates with "Darwinism" - in medicine since 2007, and various folks here have commented on what has been termed his "egnorance".

Jerry Coyne has in the past argued that evolutionary biology "doesnât have much practical value in medicine" but has now changed his mind based on evidence presented by David Hillis. Dr Egnor could take a lesson from this illustration of evidence leading to a change in stance (hey! ain't that science?), but I'm guessing his dogmatic assertions will just continue.
