Charles Darwin (1809-1882) was generations ahead of his time, courting controversy, bequeathing to us the theory of evolution and shifting the zeitgeist of modern science.
His "survival of the fittest" and "law of the jungle" are phrases so commonplace today that even young children would have some idea of their meaning.
However, according to The Guardian, there are holes in Darwinian biology. A prime example: The “tree of life” he drew in his famous notebooks.
New research suggests this concept could actually be wrong.
The tree of life portrayed how species are interlinked, and what the whole exercise meant to show was that natural selection is the engine of evolution.
The latest experiments by geneticists show otherwise.
