2 thoughts on “Ernst Haeckel and the recapitulation of an “early” biological debate”

  1. Ernst Haeckel was proven to be a fraud and admitted as much. The theories he promoted and the figures used to support them were found to be non-science, but rather were falsifications to promote world view over scientific evidence.

    I think that we should not look to him as pivotal in the progress of scientific discovery. Rather his “contributions” have caused disarray and set biological science back significantly.
