Charles Darwin’s The Origin of Species had an unfortunate title.
It was a great book for its time, and is roughly correct about what evolution looks like in the rear-view mirror.
Though if you want to know how we actually get a new species, the explanation in there is very incomplete, at best.
Natural selection — perhaps Darwin’s most important concept — explains the “survival of the fittest” but nothing Darwin wrote ever really explained the “arrival of the fittest.”
Especially how it happens so fast — orders of magnitude faster than randomness and probability would predict.
That’s why I believe Nobel Prize-winning geneticist Barbara McClintock’s work is WAY more interesting and enlightening about what’s really happening with evolution than Darwin ever was!
While Darwin talks about what evolution looks like after it happens… McClintock did a bunch of experiments on corn plants in the 1940s that actually triggered evolution and made it happen in real time. She was the very first person to look forward on evolution.
You can’t drive looking in the rear view mirror, McClintock’s work shows us you can’t truly understand evolution that way either.
McClintock’s work gave us a whole slew of new discoveries around how genetics and real-time evolution really work (I go into a lot of detail in my book, Evolution 2.0).
And her discoveries totally fly in the face of the “random mutation” understanding of evolution that even today’s Darwinist’s still dogmatically argue for, over half a century later.
Watch this video to hear how McClintock influenced me — and why I believe you must understand her work to truly understand evolution…
