If Darwin were to examine the evidence today using modern science, would his conclusions be the same?
Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species, published over 150 years ago, is considered one of history’s most influential books and continues to serve as the foundation of thought for evolutionary biology. Since Darwin’s time, however, new fields of science have emerged that simply give us better answers to the question of origins. With a Ph.D. in cell and developmental biology from Harvard University, Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson is uniquely qualified to investigate what genetics reveal about origins.
The Origins Puzzle Comes Together
If the science surrounding origins were a puzzle, Darwin would have had fewer than 15% of the pieces to work with when he developed his theory of evolution. We now have a much greater percentage of the pieces because of modern scientific research. As Dr. Jeanson puts the new pieces together, a whole new picture emerges, giving us a testable, predictive model to explain the origin of species.
A New Scientific Revolution Begins
So, what comes next? Darwin’s theory of evolution may be one of science’s longest standing, but the latest genetics research is casting doubt on it. Are these new discoveries cause to critically reexamine Darwin’s theory? Replacing Darwin asks you to give serious consideration to modern scientific advances and reevaluate the problems that have surfaced in Darwin’s theory of evolution.”
