Imre Lakatos (the philosopher of science)  offered a useful concept in
his idea of “research programs” with “protected cores.“ When a
theoretical or experimental result comes along that seems to refute a
research program, its core is not affected. Instead new kinds of
explanations, hypotheses or processes are added to the program so that
its core concepts remain intact. The only way a research program can be


derailed is if it ceases to grow as fast as some rival program.





The core ideological aspect of the Darwin regime is not a reserch program, but a frozen religion. The idea some rival program can displace is naive. There are plenty of rivals.That is just another excuse for doing nothing.
