Darwin’s Folly

In 1831, a young man with a weak stomach set off for 5 years as an unpaid naturalist onboard the HMS Beagle. The conclusions he reached on this momentous voyage changed how we saw the world and our place in it. There was only one problem: Charles Robert Darwin was wrong.

Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, we’ll examine one of the most influential ideas in science over the past 200 years – the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection. Charles Darwin’s much touted theories have been enthusiastically, even religiously, embraced by science, and questioning them invites scorn on a level normally reserved for members of the flat earth society. Still, it has to be said: Darwin made some great and essential errors. Let’s have a deeper look.

  1. This was the second of your podcasts I listened to and was very disappointed. One thing I cannot stand is people that know nothing of science and evolution stating that it is incorrect. Study the evidence before you dismiss one of the most important theories of the modern day.

    Just because the theory is counter-intuitive to YOU has ZERO bearing on its truth.

    Your intro is hillarious – the nerve. Blah blah blah…Darwin was wrong! Try saying that to a lecture hall full of evolutionary biologists. Try telling them why they are wrong – I am sure you would be laughed out of the room.

    You’re a joke!

  2. Hi Richard!This was interesting to listen. So you are a creationist? How old is the Earth do you mean? But all scelets and bones they have found? Don´t you beleive in the dinosauries either? Don´t you believe in any form of development or evolution? Don´t you believe that the evolution goes from the ligher stages to the higher? Why not?
    Have you read Marc Andre Keppe´s book “the origin of the earth”? If you have readen it, what did you think about it?

    Thanks/Mikael J,Sweden
