“The higher incidence of copy number variants in persons with [autism spectrum disorders] provides important insight into the genetic contribution to etiology,” said Dr. Ernest Krug III, clinical professor of pediatrics at Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine. . . .
“We are still left with the contribution of environment and other epigenetic factors, since no one accepts genetic determinism when it comes to specific outcomes,” said Krug.
What . . . huh? If “no one accepts genetic determinism when it comes to specific outcomes,” then natural selection is useless. The whole purpose of the “natural selection” rhetoric was to replace deistic teleology. But if a specific function, after selection, cannot be hard-coded into the next generation’s genes . . . well, there goes the rationale for evolution.
