    In ''Descent of man'' Darwin wrote: "The chief distinction in the intellectual powers of the two sexes is shewn by man's attaining to a higher eminence, in whatever he takes up, than can woman - whether requiring deep thought, reason, or imagination, or merely the use of the senses and hands"( see: Darwin, Descent of Man - Chapter 19 - Secondary Sexual Characters of ManChapter 19, 1871 edition at http://www.und.edu/instruct/akelsch/399/darwin.htm )

    Do you see what happens when you make dogmatic and vehement statements based on errant speculation? Some people never learn. [​IMG]

    Yeah, well, the old fellow had a lot of problems, but I'm sure he knows better now... :D

    In that time period, I doubt seminary would have taught him anything different.

    I find the posting of a laughing face in response to the supposition that Darwin is in hell something that Christ surely would not do, but something that Satan surely does.

    I thought that too at first, but I decided to proceed with the assumption that they thought that perhaps Darwin was in heaven and found out there that he was mistaken. [​IMG]

    Although this is something that almost every male and female in the world would have agreed with Darwin about and been wrong about during that time period.

    You mean it's not true?
