Although my main academic training is in Archaeology (PhD), as my research became increasingly independent, I began digging around some old dusty long forgotten archives and soon discovered that our current genetically-driven concept of evolutionary dynamics itself evolved and often, not by natural means. I began to realise that there had always been well-founded scientifically sound criticism of our Darwinian model and indeed, perfectly plausible alternatives, hence, as these exciting and much aligned alternatives are finally beginning to get the scientific recognition they have always deserved, I began writing about these in a blog entitled: digging up the future dot com
This research and ongoing discoveries have made their way into several publications listed here (See the 'Little Book of Evolutionary Quotes', 'The Epigenetic Caterpillar: An Alternative View of the Peppered Moth Phenomenon', 'Lamarck and the Sad Tale of the Blind Cave Fish' and watch out for forthcoming book about D'Arcy Thompson's dynamic evolutionary model).
Another related book - soon to be released, is entitled: 'Don't Count Your Children Until They've Had the Pox' which explores a very different form of non-genetic generational immunity using original death statistics from some of the deadliest contagions known to humankind with a focus on Ireland and comparing these with other developed nations.
Other publications by the author range from self-publishing to science fiction dealing with a futuristic (evolutionary) genetics theme and are also published under the imprint: DiG-Press.

Jenner’s pioneering efforts and apparent success back in 1796 (the creation of the cowpox vaccine against Smallpox) established the entire rationale for vaccination and on the basis of this perceived triumph over nature itself we then went on to attempt to conquer other great contagions too. However, as it turns out, Jenner’s pioneering efforts may have taken credit where credit was not due ...

This book assesses the unjust suppression & more recent scientific vindication of the 'Original Founder of Evolution' Jean Baptiste Lamarck.
Not many know that Darwin himself was a Lamarckian as he believed that blindness in cave-fish was due to the disuse of their eyes brought about by finding themselves in dark environments. It turns out that he may have been right....
Epigenetics (meaning beyond the genes) is an alternative explanation for the Neo-Darwinian version of the Peppered Moth phenomenon - the epigenetic caterpillar is a case in point. It has exactly the same genes as its adult form - a butterfly. yet, this creature having the same genes looks nothing like a flying insect. This booklet will explain why it is epigenetic. And Darwin would have agreed.
