Darwinism Is Not All Science. Some Was Conjecture

For example, Darwin's speculations about human destinies only reaches the hypothesis stage. At that stage, you can let any idea be considered science.
Just to be accurate always distinguish between two levels of information:
1) Darwin's primary thesis and biological science 2) his own conjectures -- "Darwinism" -- and various other folks' conjectural writings. If it's not as rigorous as other science, it should not be defended as being as rigorous.
It may be that there IS a religion of Darwinism
such as the assertions in The Bell Curve. While its central assertion is true to some extent and even obvious, they did not come near accuracy in
detailing the actual variables in play, and so their conclusion was more an historical religion with biological science overtones than being hard science.
