WWDD (What Would Darwin Do?) or Biological Time in Darwinian Perspective


One of the purposes of a blog may also be to save one's writings from being trashed on old disks, old computers, or even old paper. So, here is something I wrote a couple of years ago. It may be somewhat out-dated in the sense that more recent references can be added, but the main thrust of the argument is still OK, I believe.

It is long, but it is also much less politicized than the related posts, e.g.,:
http://sciencepolitics.blogspot.com/2004/10/god-genes-and-conservatives.html
http://sciencepolitics.blogspot.com/2004/10/genocentrism-aids-anti-abortion.html

I hope you find it enjoyable. Unfortunately, Blogger is unpredictable as usual, so the four parts did not publish in order I posted them. Thus, it may be better to follow these links:

Part I - Darwinian Method
http://sciencepolitics.blogspot.com/2004/12/wwdd-i-darwinian-method.html

Part II - Darwin on Time
http://sciencepolitics.blogspot.com/2004/12/wwdd-ii-darwin-on-time.html

Part III - Whence Clocks?
http://sciencepolitics.blogspot.com/2004/12/wwdd-iii-whence-clocks.html


Part IV - Power of Darwinian Method
