    As I wrote in Darwin's Black Box (Behe 1996, 86), the problem of blood clotting is not in just forming a clot--any precipitated protein might plug a hole. Rather the problem is regulation. The...

    Yet function implies a fold, does it not?

    Since tertiary structure is needed for a typical enzyme active site to form, one way to obtain this estimate is to measure the prevalence of sequences...

    Surely function was being selected for throughout! A uniform environment does not mean that selection ceases.

    So he hoodwinked the editors of the Journal of Molecular Biology? What you just stated would not seem worthy of publication.

    Though you have to get to new function in order for multiple mutations to be selected positively, and Axe shows that new function is generally far away. So the mutations are probably independent.

    Yes and no, repentance is calling people to obedience, thus Paul can speak of those who "obey the gospel" (2 Th. 1:8).

    But these two arguments are not mutually exclusive, included in the argument here is that the environment stays basically the same.

    Well, it's close enough, if you started with function, which presumably was selected.

    I think saying Rom. 10 means "Jesus is YHWH" is far-fetched! And even in the context of Rom. 10, Lord is clearly meaning "Lord":

    "Jesus is Lord" is the text, I believe this is a confession of obedience.
