Came here to say basically this. I was really getting into Darwinism until it took the bad science turn.
I think it's fair to say that the author is not endorsing the bad science; I mean the horror is that the main character is performing terrible "experiments" based on a complete ignorance of evolution, biology and the scientific method.

This.

Sorry, never intended to say the author was endorsing the science, as I thought he did it on purpose.  Throughout history, people have taken science an run off with half assed understanding in unintentional directions.  From entropy being over construed to end of the earth theories to the internet being a series of tubes, popular culture has regularly abused scientific theory to push political and personal agendas.  This story is that creepy borderland of how far you can twist a theory to your own evil purposes, which gives me the shivers.

Yes, first time posters aren't allowed to post links (anti-spam)
Here's the link though! http://www.fringefestival.org/2017/show/?id=20171227

I would totally go to this if I were in the area. I'd love to see this in a play!

Thanks, Brian! Reposting to include that link.

Wanted to alert Pseudopod fans in the American Midwest that the story The Last Bombardment from Pseudopod episode #459 has been developed into horror theater, performing at the Minnesota Fringe Festival August 3-13. We'd love to see you there.
