Before Darwin's theory, the common view was (AFAIK) Lamarkian evolution. This theory required (again, AFAIK) that changes in the individual being were passed on to its offspring, and thus the great variety of species that exist today. Now this was proven wrong, by the Darwinians. However, what I don't get is how the Lamarkians ever explained the passing of individual changes to offspring, in the first place. Does anyone have a link or something, that explains the Lamarkian reasoning?
