Thomas Huxley was a naturalist and a strong supporter of Darwin's theory of evolution. When he first grasped Darwin's idea, Huxley said, "How extremely stupid not to have thought of that!" Maybe that's the sign of a good idea: once you understand it, it seems like common sense. By the way, you can buy a beer stein with Huxley's quote about Darwinism at The Philosophy Store.

Thanks for your comment again, ktismatics and for the Philosophy Store.
The struggle for life and such Darwinist ideas are laws that only operate on occasion.
Otherwise, why put a philosophical statement on my drink, especially before I give it to someone else?

*new* item at Chez Odile is the metachat where Creatives and Thinkers meet.
