INFOGRAPHIC: 5 Most Popular Evolution Books are 40 Years Obsolete

The world’s 5 most popular evolution books are: College textbook Evolution by Douglas Futuyma; Selfish Gene, Extended Phenotype and Blind Watchmaker by Richard Dawkins; and Why Evolution is True by Jerry Coyne. All sidestep and even dismiss the most vital discoveries of evolutionary biology. This Infographic details their omissions. (Click here to download PDF)

Stage 4 cancer patients are not much better off today than in 1930 despite the US Government spending $250 billion on cancer research.1 We’re also losing the antibiotics arms race against bacteria. Bugs evolve into superbugs in minutes; we don’t adequately understand why.

These problems stem from an inadequate understanding of evolution. A prime reason cancer treatments fail is that tumor cells evolve at tremendous speed by a self-governing process. Chemotherapy and radiation often trigger more aggressive cancers because cells evolve actively; not passively, slowly or accidentally.

Yet today’s five best-selling popular evolution books say little about these high speed systems, omitting some of the most valuable discoveries of the last 100 years.

Jerry Coyne: Not a Happy Camper

Sam Devis, host of the “When Belief Dies” podcast mentioned “Perry Marshall” to evolutionary biologist Jerry Coyne. Sam was unprepared for Coyne’s reaction:

Why is Coyne so upset? After you watch this video clip, check out this infographic comparing Coyne’s book Why Evolution is True to current literature.

The infographic “What Popular Evolution Books Ignore” details glaring omissions of bestselling books by Richard Dawkins, Doug Futuyma and Jerry Coyne. These authors provide misleading and oversimplified accounts of evolutionary mechanisms. Their omissions are hindering progress in cancer and disease research. All aspects of biology and medicine suffer as a result.

The question you naturally ask is, “Which books accurately report evolution?” The following list is a good start: Read more »

Say Modernizing What We Teach About Our Ability To Influence Evolution Can Change How Medicine Is Practiced

OXFORD, England, July 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Misunderstandings and omissions from Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution have spawned massive failures in cancer, antibiotics and nutrition – and it’s time to rediscover the real Darwin. That’s the view of famed Oxford scientist Denis Noble, creator of the first 3-D model of the heart, longtime author on evolutionary change and scientific advisor to the $10 Million Evolution 2.0 Prize created by biotech company Natural Code LLC.

The Ancient Greek and Early Church Fathers on Evolution

Mark Chenoweth is a theologian with a particular interest in St. Maximus the Confessor (700 AD) and St. Gregory of Nyssa (400 AD) who wrote about life on earth as a goal directed process as opposed to a series of divine miracles. Their ideas were very much in line with the ancient Greeks who have been greatly under-estimated by modern thinkers.

Here we hear Mark’s story of being drawn into evolutionary science and what implications this has for modern people.

Mark’s paper is called “A Maximian Framework for Understanding Evolution”.

LINK: A Maximian Framework for Understanding Evolution

Mark Chenoweth received his M.​Div.​ and Th.​M.​ from St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary and is an adjunct professor at St. John’s University in New York. His articles have been published in scholarly journals such as St. Vladimir’s Quarterly, and he is hoping to soon begin a dissertation on the theology of St. Maximus the Confessor.

LIVE TODAY: Two world class cancer researchers

Today July 1 2021 at 11am Eastern, 10 Central, 8 Pacific, 5pm London, Evolution 2.0 is hosting the monthly Cancer & Evolution zoom call. Our speakers are Kimberly Bussey and Azra Raza.

Azra will be showing how to detect cancer at Stage NEGATIVE One. The work she is presenting today is GROUNDBREAKING. Azra (upper right) is a force of nature and listening to her speak is an experience.

Kimberly (lower right) will show how cancer’s triggering systems look to be 600 million years old, found in ancient bacteria – so she’s explaining methods of identifying those behaviors EARLY not late.

This is PhD level discussion. SOME will be over most lay peoples’ heads – but not all. That’s because the scientists joining these calls are from many different fields, therefore speakers have to minimize “inside my specialty” jargon.

Azra’s is particularly lay-friendly. 30 minute presentations X2 plus 30 minutes of Q&A.
