The "Random Genetic Drift" Fallacy Paperback – September 10, 2014
by Prof William B. Provine (Author)
Much of my life has been devoted to the history of population genetics. My early book was my Ph.D. thesis still in print: The Origins of Theoretical Populations Genetics (1971, 2nd edition, 1991). I stated in the 2nd edition in the Afterword that “random genetic drift” was giving me pause, as does the evolutionary synthesis. My later book was Sewall Wright and Evolutionary Biology (1986) and is also still in print. Now I am writing this book against “random genetic drift,” invented by R. A. Fisher and followed by Sewall Wright and J. B. S. Haldane. “Random genetic drift” is the core of population genetics. Any person who believes in “random genetic drift” should read this book.

PERGUNTA CÁUSTICA DESTE BLOGGER:
E os darwinistas ortodoxos fundamentalistas xiitas pós-modernos, chiques e perfumados a la Dawkins, têm a cara de pau de dizer que a teoria da evolução de Darwin através da seleção natural (e n mecanismos de A a Z - vai que um falhe...) não passa por uma profunda crise epistemológica no contexto de justificação teórica? E não querem que os alunos saibam e discutam isso em salas de aulas de ciência???
