Jay W. Forrester, the Father of Systems Dynamics recently died. System Dynamics is about computer modeling of complex systems like ecological systems. This field is within my field of interest, but outside my field of expertise.
Dawkins said that evolution can be explained as similar to a computer model apparently unaware that computers models are designed and he was arguing that evolution is not.
My biggest issue with Darwinian evolution is that it claims that evolution is structurally linear, while systems dynamics creates models which are non-linear. Natural Selection as best I can tell is the ecological feedback of evolution.
Darwin’s understanding of evolution was linear, but the role of Natural Selection is non-linear. This is the reason why his understanding of Natural Selection which is followed by Dawkins & Co. is wrong.
It is a shame that modern discoveries of ecology and Systems Dynamics are ignored by the modern science of evolution.
