Moving on from a Darwinian World View

Darwin’s vision of the world significantly influenced biology in the 20 th century, despite persistent questions posed by factors such as lateral gene transfer, neutral evolution, and chaotic bottlenecks in natural selection.  However, scientific research now demonstrates that Darwin's 'tree of life' theory of evolution is wrong.

Darwin's theory has been used to support the belief that ancient humans — Neanderthal, Cro-Magnon, and Denisova — did not mix. In fact, based on Darwin's assumptions, most anthropologists claim that modern humans were simply descended from Cro-Magnons, who had exterminated their less-fit adversaries. But we now know that modern humans are a combination of these three ancient humans.

This understanding also refutes the belief of 'Mitochondrial Eve', the woman from whom all humans supposedly descend on their mother's side.

Research on the human leukocyte antigen genes, which are involved in the human immune response, shows that such a common ancestor could not have existed; this group of genes derives from those of all three known ancient humans.

Genetic research, in particular, must be free to find new models to explain, and enhance, 21st century scientific discovery.
