The once obsolete theory of Lamarckism states:
Which means that animals adapt to their environment, obtain the adaptive features in their current life, and then modify their genes to pass them on.
The modern theory of Darwinism holds that we do not change our genes, but rather, we are naturally selected through our fitness, such that the fit will pass on their genes to the next generation, thus explaining evolutionary change.
Punctuated equilibrium, a more modern theory, states:
That means, through geographic upheavals or genetic mutations, certain creatures become what they are through an abrupt change in their environments.
Monsters in Evolve, however, pose an issue: they mutate in one life, and seem to pass down the changes that they have gotten to the next generation, entailing a Lamarkist theory of evolutionary change that propels itself through abrupt punctuated equilibria changes instead of gradualism.
Do you all think that Darwin, after 200 years of being triumphant, has finally been disproven by a pack of monsters?
