To the Garden of Eden and Back

A new look.
The biological phenomenon called epigenetics has been known since the 1970s, but for unexplained reasons, not really discussed at large till recently. Keeping epigenetics obscure may have served a purpose – to advance and maintain the fading idea of Darwinian biology. Darwinian evolution demands millions of years for mutations to occur, whereas epigenetics is now.

Are you aware of the Mitochondrial DN: Eve gene.
It seems that tehre is a gene which is only passed through females and judging the mutation it has been determined that it came from a single woman. Therefore the Eve gene.

" Ultimately, every person alive today has inherited their mitochondrial DNA from one single great-great-great-. . .-grandmother, nearly 200,000 years ago." Openheimer

From what I have read, Darwin differentiated between organisms adapting to changing environments, and/or filling niches by adapting to them ("survival of the fittest, from Natural Selection and Evolution. Not that I am defending Darwinism, but it never seemed to me that he lumped these various phenomena under one process as appears to be indicated by the article.
