The simplest explanation? (Evolution)

DAVID: I never objected to Shapiro's theory, but to your gross extrapolation from it of cell intelligence.

David. J. Turell, The Atheist Delusion, p. 142, quoting from James A. Shapiro:
Living cells and organisms are cognitive (sentient) entities that act andinteract purposefully to ensure survival, growth and proliferation. They possess sensory, communication, information-processing and decision-making capabilities.

[..] they have the ability to alter their hereditary characteristics rapidly…

Evolutionary novelty arises from the production of new cell and multicellular structures as a result of cellular self-modification functions and cell fusions.

What gross extrapolation?
