The Altenberg 16 & the "extended evolutionary synthesis": The triumph of Transudationism!
In July 2008, a gathering of 16 biologists and philosophers of rock star stature – let's call them "the Altenberg 16" – who recognize that the theory of evolution which most practicing biologists accept and which is taught in classrooms today, is inadequate in explaining our existence. It's pre the discovery of DNA, lacks a theory for body form and does not accomodate "other" new phenomena. So the theory Charles Darwin gave us, which was dusted off and repackaged 70 years ago, seems about to be reborn as the "Extended Evolutionary Synthesis."
I challenge ANYONE to watch the below video and not concede that Transudationism is a rational hypothesis:
