Natural selection and students confused over statistics

The front lines of the evolution debate lie in the schools, but just here the whole confusion of darwinism and natural selection enters to compromise the confrontation with creationists and the large public that finds ‘evolution’ a stumbling block. As far as can be determined from this article the standard darwinian scenarios is preached with darwinism and evolution collated.
There is a simple way out here: simply teach the factual and empirical history of evolution but remain open about the mechanisms and skip trying to sneak in natural selection.
The fallacies of natural selection have confused generations of students whose grasp of statistics is compromised for good. Hardly educational…

 Dissent over darwinism is entering mainstream…so long to marxism’s darwin dogma, natural selection and class struggle, etc…

The challenge to darwinism has been there all along buried by the establishment writers and academics. The question is confused by the issue of intelligent design, but its proponents have at least produced a lot of criticism of darwinism that is sometimes useful.

 The left allows itself to be fooled by the darwin propaganda system

It is puzzling to see how propaganda so easily ensnared the left on the subject of ‘evolution’. Debriefing natural selection is actually so easy that the result has been the demolition of darwinism by amateurs, while the darwin establishment continues in ignorance, or knowing deception…

That natural selection not only can’t produce ‘evolution’ but can actually ‘undo’ it by degrading complexity (if that is what Behe is saying in his new book) should be…

The left needs to fill the void on the critique of darwinism

The religious right has taken over the older critique of darwinism but turned it into a subtle form of apologetics, although the ID camp as such has tried to observe a scientific neutrality.
This critique of darwinism, which was originally a scientific one (cf. figures such as Fred Hoyle), focused on the issue of natural selection has become football for the religious right.
In the process, notably here, the whole range of issues is scrambled with right wind climate denial, a stance that throws the whole scientific pretense of these groups in doubt.
Time for the left to take over the critique of darwinism, exposing its social darwinist ideology, and freeing it from any nonsense of about other conservative issues, e.g. climate change which has nothing whatsoever to do with the evolution issue.
Noone has as yet produced a true theory of evolution, so an empirical study set with critiques would do the left nicely…

 Persistent darwinism? an ideology of the elites…

We have repeatedly tried to expose the foundation of the social darwinist ideology at the core of darwinism. The left has consistently hedged here by blaming social darwinism on something else than the basic theory of natural selection. We need hardly wonder why the debate over evolution has been so protracted: powerful economic interests maintain the ideological illusion of darwinism…(as the left fumbles the ball in compliance) Continue reading ” Persistent darwinism? an ideology of the elites…”

   Why is the left stuck is darwinian fundamentalism?  It should decamp asap from darwinian ideology

In many ways the question answers itself and the real question is how the world of evolutionary biologists could have been stuck for so long in a fallacious darwinian mindset that has simply discredited the whole profession. Evem amateurs have done better and in fact taken over the front line of the whole question while brain dead PHD’s mumble the old nonsense.
The left can help here with a simplified public take on evolution: although the fact/theory debate has suffered chronic disinfo confusion (on both sides) the basic point, restated remains clear: we look into deep time and see factually that evolution is real. But at the same time a scientific framework to really explain that is not so simple. That’s all that is needed here. Defending ‘natural selection’ there at this point simply exposes some kind of agenda. The very simple formulation above is all that is needed to bypass darwinian fundamentalism, leftist social darwinian, and creationist attempts to inject religion.

The onset of the postdarwinian left

The failure of darwinism was most eerily foreseen at once by Marx who saw the ideology behind darwinism the moment he reckoned with the ‘theory’. But the history here has been muddled and Marx himself clearly retreated from his instant clarity to the kind of marxist darwinism foisted on the left by the tide of falsely understood materialism and secular humanism. That’s all over now.
