Climbing. Mount. Improbable: S. Evolutionary. Science. or. Wishful. Thinking?
Introduction Of all the lectures in this series, this is the one I most assiduously try
to avoid having to present. I have manufactured all sorts of entirely valid reasons
to convince different universities that my "Big Bang" lecture was far more suitable
to their environments than would be this evolution talk. Of all the topics treated in
this book, evolution is the most inflammatory. The ratio of heat to light produced ...

What might seem to be a highly improbable development needs to be set against
the backdrop of the huge periods of time envisaged by the evolutionary process.
Dawkins explores this point using the image of a metaphorical “Mount
Improbable.” Seen from one angle, its “towering, vertical cliffs” seem impossible
to climb. Yet seen from another angle, the mountain turns out to have “gently
inclined grassy meadows, graded steadily and easily towards the distant uplands
.”10 The ...

182 In chapter three of Dawkins book Climbing Mount Improbable, Dawkins
claims that, 'The story of Mount Improbable is, of course, a parable.' So we see
that Dawkins is quite comfortable with the mantle of high priest and giver of
parables. He further illuminates the fact that he sees himself as a theologian of
natural selection in an ironic parody in which he justifies his theological
credentials by showing the same inconsistency he suggests is the mantle of the
true theologian.

“Mount Improbable” i.e. evolution by chance increments, comes from Climbing
Mount Improbable (1997) by Richard Dawkins which is (I think) at odds not so
much with the second law of thermodynamics as the laws of probability. Dawkins
suggests this improbability can be climbed via a gentler slope, little by little, but
with no available work at hand for climbing (only random jolts, on the level) it is
the height that makes the ascent improbable, if not impossible, not the slope: the
slope is ...
