Wilkins discussing Darwin myths.

John Wilkins has started a nice series of posts discussing Myths about Darwin (you don’t have to agree with them altogether, but you should read them).

So far

Myth 1: Darwin did not believe in the reality of species

Myth 2: Darwin did not explain the origin of species in The Origin of Species

Myth 3: Darwin was a Lamarckian

Myth 4: Darwin was a gradualist
(See also Sandwalk)

Myth 5: Darwin thought evolution relied on accidents and chance

One thought on “Wilkins discussing Darwin myths.

  1. Thanks for the links, Ryan. I hope folk disagree – it makes interesting reading in the comments and means we all learn something – the link to Larry’s comments, for example, is invaluable, although he’s wrong about Darwin 🙂
