David Dobbs mucks up evolution, part II « Why Evolution Is True

David Dobbs mucks up evolution, part II « Why Evolution Is True.

The second part of Jerry Coyne’s response to David Dobb’s Aeon piece on the problems with the selfish gene metaphor.

Be sure to read Dobb’s extended response in the comment section.  Maybe I’m misreading, but Dobb’s appears to be backpedaling significantly from the sentiment expressed in the title of his article.

I find Coyne’s arguments more compelling on this, but I wonder about whether the recent results showing smell memory being passed from generation to generation in mice has any bearing on the debate.
