What if Darwin was not still dead?

What Would Darwin Think About Modern Darwinism?

Excerpt: “Imagine if Darwin could be transported to the present and learn what has become of his theory. What would excite him the most? Would anything disturb or disappoint him? TVOL has polled some of the most distinguished evolutionists of our day and we are pleased to provide their answers as our gift to Darwin and his admirers on his 206th Birthday!”
It would be interesting to compare answers from distinguished serious scientists who are Combating Evolution to Fight Disease to the answers from evolutionists who have forced the serious scientists to combat pseudoscientific nonsense with facts about biologically-based cause and effect.
R2d2 beats Mendel: Scientists find selfish gene that breaks long-held law of inheritance
Excerpt:  “…breaks Gregor Mendel’s century-old “law of segregation,” which states that you have an equal probability of inheriting each of two copies of every gene from both parents.”
On quantum scales, there are many second laws of thermodynamics
Excerpt: “…there are additional second laws which constrain the way in which disorder can increase.”
My comment: Taken together, breaking Mendel’s Law and adding to the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics attest to the pseudoscientific nonsense called neo-Darwinism. Those who celebrate Darwin Day probably don’t realize what they are celebrating:
“[W]hat Haldane, Fisher, Sewell Wright, Hardy, Weinberg et al. did was invent…. Evolution was defined as “changes in gene frequencies in natural populations.” The accumulation of genetic mutations was touted to be enough to change one species to another…. Assumptions, made but not verified, were taught as fact.” — Replace the Modern Synthesis (Neo-Darwinism): An Interview With Denis Noble
Those who celebrate Darwin Day also may not realize why Israeli middle-schools recently started to teach evolutionary theory. Israeli Middle Schools School to Include Theory of Evolution “…learning about evolution is not the primary function of the decision, but rather to use it as a building block for students to learn more about their ecology.”
The Modern Synthesis has been replaced with what is known about RNA-directed DNA methylation and nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions, which differentiate all the cell types of all individuals of all species. Those who celebrate Darwin Day are celebrating their ignorance of biologically-based cause and effect, which Darwin placed into the context of his “conditions of life.”
Ecological variation and ecological adaptation are “conditions of life.” Theories about mutations and evolution are substitutes for learning how ecological variation is epigenetically linked from nutrient uptake to the physiology of reproduction by feedback loops and chromatin loops that link the biophysically constrained chemistry of protein folding to biodiversity in species from microbes to man.
