"Traits acquired in an organism during its lifetime are passed on to offspring." (Claim #E506)
"For instance, giraffes have long necks because for many generations, the parent would stretch its neck to reach high leaves, making its neck slightly longer. This slightly longer neck was passed down to its offspring, and so on."
This claim is no longer widely used. It has been disproven by genetics and tests.
