You know, one of the strengths of scientific theories is that they change to accomadate new information.

What does it matter which exact words Darwin used 150 years ago?
The Theory of Evolution has evolved much since those early days. Plus, he didn't invent evolution, he just observed it.

The Theory of Evolution has changed and advanced since it was first put forth by Darwin in the 19th Century.

Your intelligence on the other hand, has not.

Darwin never said anything about the Schrodinger equation, either.

And THIS, my friend, is why you sound retarded each time you speak about "Darwinism".

It's true, Darwin didn't say that. He merely identified one of the primary mechanisms which, along with other work, led someone else to each that definition.

good thing evolutionary biology has advanced to take into account Mendel's work.

Darwin was the first to formulate the theory, doesn't mean he was right about everything. Other people have built on his work to produce the modern theory of evolution.

Funny, because they did. However, they never caught on. At least until scientists discovered them. And that was when ToE really caught on.
