Wallace revived! Film about Darwin’s co-theorist released

Spread the love

Here’s Discovery Institute’s trailer for the film on the life of Darwin’s forgotten/sneered at co-theorist Alfred Russel Wallace, illustrating the work of science historian Michael Flannery:

“He’s been called a biological Indiana Jones. He explored the Amazon. He lived with headhunters … “

But wait. This isn’t Indiana Jones. It really happened.

Next time you hear a Darwinist sneer at Wallace, ask yourself, could he do what that guy did? (Okay, she?) Darwin would never have published his atheist-happy theory, if Wallace hadn’t written to tell him about natural selection as a mechanism, and not as “the best idea anyone ever had” (key pop philosopher Daniel Dennett’s summation).

Enjoy.

    Don’t forget to mention that Patrick Matthew and Edward Blyth also had ideas about natural selection acting in nature before Darwin and Wallace.
