I've been wondering about the implications of my research. What would a truly scientific evolutionary theory look like?

Studies of the fossil record raise questions about the role of competition in evolution. If organisms contribute so much to creating their own environments, do they modify their behavior to enhance these environments? How deterministic is this creation and modification?

Malthusian fears and ideology about control of resources affected Darwin's thinking about evolutionary strategies. Despite his efforts, how much is the Darwinist concept of survival driven by myths of scarcity?
It looks as if embryological development may have a major role in the history of the earth.

I've been excited about dressing in the gown and am avoiding it at the same time.
