Naturalist Biologist Lynn Margulis – a neo-Darwinian Heretic

Lynn Margulis (born March 5, 1938) is an American biologist and University Professor in the Department of Geosciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. In an interview in the April 2011 edition of Discover Magazine, she unabashedly objects to the standard neo-Darwinian explanation for evolution. She simply doesn’t believe that natural selection has the causative power that so many otherwise accept. Indeed, her objections are some of the exact same ones shared by other non-Darwinists and ID proponents (Michael Behe, Stephen C. Meyer, Philip Johnson, et. al.). While she proposes another natural mechanism, called The Endosymbiotic Theory, her critique of the standard Darwinian explanation runs deep. Go here for the full the interview:
