  •  True that Mendel's work was published (4+ / 0-)

    before Darwin, but it was pretty much ignored.  It wasn't until around 1900 that Mendel's work was rediscovered and its significance was understood.

    It is my understanding that Mendel sent Darwin the results of his work thinking it would be of help, but Darwin put it aside.  

    I agree with you 100% that science is never a done deal.  That is what makes it so exciting.

    Are you a lifelong learner or do you know everything already.
