coverLamarck's Signature : How Retrogenes Are Changing Darwin's Natural Selection Paradigm (Frontiers of Science (Perseus Books)) by Edward J. Steele, Robyn A. Lindley, Robert V. Blanden, Paul Davies.  

"The evidence for a Lamarckian mechanism at work in the immune system now seems very convincing, contradicting one of the main dogmas of Darwinian biology. This book presents the experimental evidence to date as to how adaptive immune responses may be incorporated into the DNA of the organism, thus making them heritable material. If the retrogene mechanism is at work in the immune system what other roles might it be playing in evolution? A huge question for our current understanding of evolution."

 Charles Darwin: Biography
Online biography by Peter Landry at blupete.com.

Excerpt:

Darwin is the first of the evolutionary biologists, the originator of the concept of natural selection. His principal works, The Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection (1859) and The Descent of Man (1871) marked a new epoch. His works were violently attacked and energetically defended, then; and, it seems, yet today. Darwin's work is today accepted by all competent biologists; it is supported by hard evidence; the only critics are the creationists and they have absolutely no evidence to support their position.
