1. Alternatives in Science: The Secular Creationism of Heribert Nilsson [Journals] [Kronos]
... long professional career, he thought of himself primarily as a geneticist devoted to forging an exact, experimental science of biology. Nilsson's name is not unknown to students of Earth in Upheaval. But Velikovsky had nothing to say about Heribert ... . That a strictly secular theory of special creation has been worked out in some detail by a fully certified academic biologist should help in undermining this illegitimate (and obviously self-serving) argument a prime example of what Norman Macbeth has termed ... completed work on Earth in Upheaval (1955) when he discovered the recently published Synthetische Artbildung: Grundlinien einer exakten Biologie (1953). There is reason to think that Nilsson's creationist theory would fit Velikovsky's catastrophism (or anyone else's ...

... it) upon which Darwin's natural selection acts to produce evolution. Mutation and natural selection go hand in hand in biological science, and it is quite misleading for Velikovsky to write as though mutation and evolution were in some way contradictory ... . Darwin did not concern himself with genetic mutations because knowledge of genetics came much later than Darwin. But modern biologists see mutations as providing the variability (or some of it) upon which Darwin's natural selection acts to produce evolution ... plus [natural] selection has, I think, been finally defeated, and a decade or two from now biologists- and philosophers- may well wonder what sort of benightedness it was that held their elders in its thrall."

5. The Science of Evolution (Concluded) [Journals] [Kronos]
... 18 are devoted to paleontology - the bare minimum necessary to acknowledge (but not discuss) the non-uniformitarian dimension of biological history. These even include one candid admission of the necessity of resorting to a cataclysm to protect evolution against the ... those who claim that uniformitarian biological evolution is a scientifically established reality, that is explained and confirmed by generations of biologists practicing a rigorous science of evolution, from providing sequential details. This is not an illegitimate request, because Stansfield ... when its flat denial was proclaimed. The logic of living things, which was, by the way, the biologist's and not nature's own, was overturned and the fine edifice cracked from bottom to top. The discovery of enzymes ...
6. Darwin's Unfalsifiable Theory [Journals] [Kronos]
... same wing shape would be bad design. Once this point is clarified, we can see that the analogy between biology and engineering breaks down, because evolutionary biology as currently set forth by such experts as Gould himself does not recognize ... more consideration. If an animal is in fact observed to survive and flourish in a given environment, then the biologist is perfectly capable of subsequently enumerating those traits that contribute to this success. For example he can point out - ... theory that camouflage is helpful to moths in a particular environment. One can easily appreciate this point by considering the biologist's reaction if the camouflage hypothesis were, much to his surprise, falsified; that is, if dark moths in ...
7. Towards a New Evolutionary Synthesis [Books]
... a New Evolutionary Synthesis Chapter 6 Towards a New Evolutionary Synthesis Trevor Palmer Darwinism challenged and defended We have now reached the point where some analysis of the current state of evolutionary biology must be attempted. In chapters 4 and 5 we looked in detail at whether fossil and other evidence from the past decade has strengthened the view prevalent up to that ... ,4 ], molecular drive could be a factor in speciation [1 ,2 ]. Like genetic drift it would, however, still be regarded by most evolutionary biologists as something which refined Darwinism rather than presenting a serious challenge to it. Lamarckism, the theory that characteristics acquired by an individual in response to the environment may be ...
8. Viva Lamarck: Renewed Discussion on the Inheritance of Acquired Characteristics [Journals] [Aeon]
... theory of evolution, C. H. Waddington, a distinguished contributor to the Neo-Darwinian synthesis, observed that: "Lamarck is the only major figure in the history of biology whose name has become, to all intents and purposes, a term of abuse. Most scientist's contributions are fated to be outgrown, but very few authors have written ... ), Philosophie zoologique (1809), and Histoire naturelle des animaux sans vertebres (1815-1822). Lamarckism, inasmuch as it is understood at all by the majority of biologists, connotes little more than a belief in the inheritance of acquired characters. While it is true that this belief was central to Lamarck's understanding of the evolutionary process, ...

Although several geologists and biologists reserved judgement on some aspects of these mutually supportive theories, ... Darwin's death in 1882 the concept of an enormous timescale had effectively ousted that of a 6,000 year old Earth and become received wisdom.
