|MadSci Network: Evolution|
Molecular biology has provided major advances in evolutionary study (like providing new ways to discover phylogenies) but has it changed the nature of thought? It is an amazing tool to get answers, but does it change the questions we ask or the principles we believe? For example, the argument that the genetic level is the "meaningful" level of evolution. Genes are the units of selection and are the real players in evolution, organisms are just "vehicles".
