‘Today our duty is to destroy the myth of evolution, considered as a simple, understood, and explained phenomenon which keeps rapidly unfolding before us. Biologists must be encourage to think about the weaknesses and extrapolations that theoreticians put forward or lay down as established truths. The deceit is sometimes unconscious, but not always, since some people, owing to their sectarianism, purposely overlook reality and refuse to acknowledge the inadequacies and falsity of their beliefs.’

Pierre-Paul Grasse (past-President, French Academie des Sciences) in ‘Evolution of Living Organisms’, Academic Press, New York, 1977, p.8.
