... randomness that guides evolution goes down. Indeed, with too much user participation, these “simulations” would verge on Lamarckian at best and creationism at worst. Finding a fair balance between these competing approaches will be the crux of further development in this field. ...

... is the comparison of Darwinian to Lamarckian evolution. It is the height of irony that this particular contrast is made, given that Darwin himself was a Lamarckian! Another major problem faced by Darwin was the general lack of an understanding of how inheritance occurs. Some then current ideas...

.... So, if a body part were to react successfully to some environmental stimulus, the gemmules produced by that body element would be slightly different than had the stimulus not occurred. If this sounds a bit Lamarckian (i.e., use and disuse), this is correct. Darwin fully accepted the view that changes...
