Patrick Matthew: Originator of Natural Selection, Solver of the Problem of Species and Proven Influencer of Darwin and Wallace

Dr Mike Weale, statistical geneticist and senior academic (Reader) at Kings College London, talks to the BBC about his new paper, published in the Linnean Journal today (Weale 2015), which is about the importance of Patrick Matthew (20th April 2015) {here}

The full radio interview available on your PC by (1) clicking the play button on the i-player link (here) and then (2) moving the slider on the video up to the numbers “38,50” – and then it begins. To hear a discussion about Weal's paper, move the slider again right until you get to: " 2.55.12".

Comments on the show can be made on BBC Twitter: here. And on the website The Patrick Matthew Project - here.

The link worked nicely and I was able to listen to the show. I found the tone of Weale and the commentator quite interesting in that it almost seemed like it's time to start including Patrick Matthew as part of the standard narrative on history of Natural Selection. It seems like you're starting to make some progress in changing conventional wisdom, a truly Herculean task these days.

We can only hope so Bob.

Once a leading Darwinists accepts the huge weight of compelling evidence that their namesake plagiarised Matthew many others will dutifully follow. It will simply take one leading Darwinist to admit it and then the 155-year-old edifice will fall.
