Darwinism does not work any more. It's predicated on the weak dying but in a civilised society, that does not happen


It's still in force; it's based on natural selection, and in some environments being "weak" (for whatever definition of "weak" you want to use) is not necessarily the same as "being selected against".

This whole idea I've been seeing that Darwinism is not in effect anymore is based on the misguided notion that it works by weeding out the weak. It doesn't. It works by weeding out the less suitable characteristics for a particular environment.
