Also included were a number of paleontologists like Edward Drinker Cope and Alpheus Hyatt , who felt that the fossil record showed orderly, almost linear, patterns of development that they felt were better explained by Lamarckian mechanisms than by natural selection. Some people, including Cope and the Darwin critic Samuel Butler , felt that inheritance of acquired characteristics would let organisms shape their own evolution, since organisms that acquired new habits would change the use patterns of their organs, which would kick-start Lamarckian evolution. They considered this philosophically superior to Darwin's mechanism of random variation acted on by selective pressures. Lamarckism also appealed to those, like the philosopher Herbert Spencer and the German anatomist Ernst Haeckel , who saw evolution as an inherently progressive process.  The German zoologist Theodor Eimer combined Larmarckism with ideas about orthogenesis . 
Anyone who has an OUNCE of real character, they want to destroy. People with convictions, character, courage… they aren’t robots, and they can’t be treated like one; and robots are all these people want, apparently. I have to wonder if the poor fools who will try and enforce this idiot list are aware that even if they manage to, then THEY’RE NEXT on the list to go into the incinerator? The “elites” do NOT want the rabid dog personality it’s going to take to enforce THIS list running around loose after they’re through with them! As for the “terrorist” designation, that’s ridiculous. The sole reason for it is the unconstitutional “laws” of the PATRIOT Act and the NDAA BOTH allow them treat “terrorists” like dirt, or like animals – or less. Sheesh! When many if not MOST of those they’ll be killing off as “terrorists” would be the first to defend against real terrorists! They’ll find out, I have no doubt.
