Was Alfred Wallace a “crazy” crank? Was he an undisciplined “dilettante” bemused by every fringe belief he encountered?
Alfred Russel Wallace took a journey Darwin could not follow. He went from natural selection to natural theology.
If any modern ID proponent fits the Wallacean model it is biologist Michael Behe.
We can add Andrew Berry to the list of those quick to praise Alfred Wallace on certain matters but equally quick to condemn him on others.
Was Darwin a Nazi? Of course not. But did his ideas form a causal nexus via Galton to ideas that would be integrated into Nazi policy? Yes.
