Kirschner: Evolution not relevant to “almost all of biology”

Dr Marc Kirschner, founding chair of the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School states:

“In fact, over the last 100 years, almost all of biology has proceeded independent of evolution, except evolutionary biology itself. Molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, have not taken evolution into account at all.”

(Of course Kirschner, as an evolutionist, hopes that one day this will be different.)
