Even Darwinists thought Darwin was crazy about this one…

Charles Darwin believed behaviors a parent learned during his or her lifetime could be passed to children. Many scientists of the time believed that. It was called “Lamarckism” after Lamarck who first proposed the theory.

Later, the Neo-Darwinists laughed Lamarckism right out of the academy. “Silly Lamarck, he didn’t know that DNA mutations are all accidental.” Lamarck was scorned for 100 years.

Turns out both Darwin and Lamarck were right! And as you see in this PBS video, your body is capable of passing an amazing set of adaptations to your children, as epigenetics adapts to situations in real time.

Epigenetics is HOT. It is fast revolutionizing the science of evolution, genetics, and nutrition.

    Sins of the Father befall the third and fourth generation, passed through the genes, the good and the bad. Been around for thousands of years, so, read your bible, it will enlighten you to many scientific beliefs, that you scoff at.

      why do you cut the sentence off? Finish the dang thought, don’t cherry pick the Bible to make a ill conceived point.

      Exodus 20:6
      …but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
