    It is possible to question Darwinian theory without questioning the fact of biological change, and many scientists have done so. Even Thomas Huxley, "Darwin's bulldog," privately rejected the principles of natural selection and gradual transmutation. Huxley believed that evolution proceeded by jumps, as we most often see in the fossil record. For example, Darwinism has no evidence for gradual evolution of the winged insect. The inadequacy of Darwinism was recognized by a conference of 160 scientists held in 1980 at Chicago's Field Museum. However, as documented in my book, The End of Darwinism, what happened in Chicago got covered up as the biologists decided to "mute," their disagreements on theory, so as not to give ammunition to the creationists. We need a free and open discussion of evolution without overzealous Darwinists making wild comparisons to geocentrism, etc.
