Cornelius hangs one over the plate
that’s the problem, it is not an uncontroversial failed prediction- Darwin himself predicted it.
That would be quite a rewrite of history. It would be a stretch to cast pangenesis as (i) intelligently responding to environmental pressures and (ii) a prediction of evolution. Darwin was struggling to formulate a mechanism of heredity. He certainly needed the mechanism not to contradict evolution, but it wasn’t any sort of an important prediction of evolution.
and Khan crushes it
|no more of a stretch than it is to call anything on your website a prediction of evolution. or a prediction of Darwin. words mean something, Cornelius, particularly when, in the absence of data or even hypotheses, it is all you have.|
