The whole cell as a critique of Darwinism

I've just added to our "Critique of Darwinism" section the article "The Secret Power of the Single Cell" by Brian J. Ford. The article was originally published in "The New Scientist," 24 April 2010, with the subtitle "Is a neuron really a tiny computer? How do lowly amoebae build complex shells? Single cells may tell us a lot about the roots of intelligence." Accounting for the whole cell faces the Modern Synthesis with perhaps its greatest and most easily marshaled challenge, short, that is, of accounting for consciousness and free will.
