From the material presented in this site, it seems evident that Darwin felt strongly that 3 theories together were needed to explain evolutionary processes. How exactly is it that these beliefs, so integral to Darwin's understanding, are totally ignored today?

One suggestion is the following: Darwin's General Observance (& Inferance) of Species Evolution derives from Innovational Adaptations according to Environment-imposed limits and molecular genetic foundations. I believe the 'Intelligent Design' folks are flawed because they fail to recognize the embedded innate genius of the bio-genetic modes & structures of life itself. Adaptation, as a survival function, is an extreme display of tireless resourcefulness. Darwin's Postulate of Evolution contains intelligent design as its fundamental operating modality. Finally, I suggest that Lemarck is not yet dead, but remains relevant, especially with respect to inheritable mutations. Example: Insects that develop resistance to the likes of DDT, etc. ultimately pass said resistance to future offspring. Hence, a genetic adaptation (qua resistance) passed from parents to offspring. A genetic adjustment ultimately remembered in the course of a cytoplasm's nucleaic mutancy. Mutany, as a necessary survival response...aka mutation...is learned (acquired) response--as adaptation--made permanent via memorialization, then ultimately passed on. Crop eating pests, that is parents exposed to DDT over time, in the course of x generations, become resistant. Such resistance passed to offspring. (Never mind antibiotic resistant bacteria. Is this not somewhat of a very mild, basic affirmation of Lemarck?):-) G-man767
