Darwin's DogmaEditor: I have for some years now been skeptical about Darwin's theory of evolution. I do not doubt that much of it is true. But did man really evolve from the apes?I am no scientist, but I was always disturbed by the dogmatism of Darwin and his supporters. By the way, the theory has been quite obviously used in recent years to justify the worst kind of animal behavior; and by the fact that great men rarely find all the truth. Many details are usually corrected later.Henry Adams (in his "Education of Henry Adams")
