Quotes | On
The following are quotes on Darwin:
- “The gradual lapse of time has now separated us by more than a decade from the date of the publication of the Origin of Species ; and, whatever may be thought or said about Darwin's doctrines, or the manner in which he has propounded them, this much is certain, that, in a dozen years, the Origin of Species has worked as complete a revolution in biological science as the Principia did in astronomy—and it has done so, because, in the words of Helmholtz (1869), it contains ‘an essentially new creative thought’.”
- “Darwin moves over the subject with the passionless strength of a glacier; and the grinding of the rocks is not always without a counterpart in the logical pulverization of the objector.”
- “If you ask me about my innermost conviction whether our century will be called the century of iron or the century of steam or electricity, I answer without hesitation: it will be called the century of the mechanical view of nature, the century of Darwin.”
Quotes | By
The following are quotes by Darwin:
- “Science has nothing to do with Christ, except insofar as the habit of scientific research makes a man cautious in admitting evidence. For myself, I do not believe that there ever has been any revelation. As for a ‘future life’, every man must judge for himself between conflicting vague probabilities.”
