About this book

The old Darwinian model of evolution was recently substituted with the selfish gene theory. This book suggests that this mainstream theory is just as erroneous as Darwin's original model and we can soon expect another revolution. It suggests replacing the selfish gene model by a theory called frozen evolution.

This new theory assumes that the vast majority of species encountered in nature are not capable of evolving even when exposed to extremely strong selection and thus only passively wait until changes in their environment accumulate to such a degree that they have no choice but to quietly die out.
