I wrote a few months ago in a blog post on the Frozen Donkey Hypothesis that the failure of willfully ignorant pseudo-scholarly Darwinists to engage with the paradigm changing New Data on who really did read Matthew's (1831) prior-published hypothesis of natural selection would create an open field that others would occupy and so come to eventually over-top Darwinists as trusted scholars of the veracious history of the discovery of natural selection. The publication in August 2015 of a paper by the Creationist, Dominic Stratham (Stratham, J. (2015) Did Darwin plagiarize Patrick Matthew? JOURNAL OF CREATION 29(2) , is confirmatory evidence for my Frozen Donkey Hypothesis:
If one encounters a frozen donkey in the road, standing, for all the world as though alive, no amount of reasoning, patience, impatient berating or rational cajoling will entice it to shift its position. The donkey is not merely being stubborn. Why not? Because it is bereft of life. The donkey can think no more, all mental faculties have ceased to be. The only solution is to go around it. Darwinist historians of science are behaving like frozen donkeys. Unable to adapt to a sudden change in their circumstances, they succumb to those circumstances. If they continue to do so they will be circumvented by scholars better able to adapt to the New Data. Once significantly circumvented, Darwinist historians of science will lose their power of occupancy in the literature on the topic of the discovery of natural selection. Once that happens they will shortly become intellectually extinct.
Debate on why Darwinists should be thoroughly ashamed (here).
