Lamarck & the Sad Tale of the Blind Cave-Fish assesses the unjust suppression & more recent scientific vindication of the 'Original Founder of Evolution' Jean Baptiste Lamarck. Contrary to popular belief, Charles Darwin was not actually adverse to Lamarckian explanations of certain evolutionary phenomenon such as: blindness in cave-fish and/or other animals losing the use of their eyes (disuse) as a result of finding themselves within dark habitats. Indeed, Darwin became increasingly supportive of Lamarckian-type drivers of species change and wished he had paid more attention to such environmental factors when, grappling with his own ideas around natural selection. As it turns out, Darwin was right to be both cautious about his own theory and his more Lamarckian leanings. This book will also address the concept of 'natural selection' as Darwin had originally proposed it, and what it came to later mean in his name. You could call this the genetic modification of Darwin. Hopefully by the time you have finished reading this book, you will fully understand why we ended up with this particular version of evolutionary 'survival of the fittest genetic machines' and none of their evolutionary alternatives.
