- The British Isles are home to just one percent of the world’s population and yet our small collection of rocks poking out of the north Atlantic has thrown up world beaters in virtually every field of human endeavour… Brian Cox

“Charles Darwin, Sir Charles Lyell, Joseph Hooker, Thomas Huxley, and Alfred Wallace, had evolved into the most creative and productive group in the wide area of Natural History in Great Britain. Without the others, Charles Darwin knew his life would have been narrow and restrictive. Minus, the life-giving fluids of friendship, constructive criticism, encouragement, and acceptance.
Everything they thought and projected came partly from each other’s brain. Their hailstorm of letters, articles, monographs, and books, travelling all over the world, affording insights, and knowledge; educated an entire generation.
Together they had “turned the world around”. Had changed the patterns of man’s thoughts about himself and the world he lived in, wiped out prejudice against those who were unorthodox in their religious beliefs, provided release from the rigid dogma of the Church, as well as escape from the power of the Clergy, Rabbi, or Imam. And not only the hierarchy’s interlocking control of the schools, press, government, but the mass of the of the people who did not have the right to determine their daily lives.
Now there was hope for intellectual independence, the individuals’ freedom from the shackles of dictatorial restraint. With man’s brain no longer encased in the iron chains of mythical belief, what wonders would he not accomplish? Becoming his own master, men would have freedom, which causes greatness”. Irving Stone ‘The Origin’ – compressed. BBC Radio 4 ‘Great Lives’ Mathew Paris – Alfred Russell Wallace. Listen on http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/networks/radio4/audiolist.shtml Date 1/1/2008, “All our (mostly, ignorant and vain) peers can do for us is to remember him by a park bench”. Also, Sir Arthur John Evans son of Sir John Evans and the excavations at Knossos in Crete 1899, helped to establish the ‘Antiquity of Man’ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_Arthur_Evans which we prefer to ignore; it makes us feel small and uneasy. Ref, Desmond Morris ‘The Naked Ape’ – Jacob Bronowski ‘The Long Childhood’ in the series ‘The Ascent of Man’. Barbara Ward – “The total lack of proportion in the whole exercise gives it a weird atmosphere of unreality, as though one had strayed into a science fiction narrative and landed on a planet, in which only fear and greed were institutionalised at a global level. A planet inhabited and ruled by anthropoids with only fossilised and vestigial intelligence, and a hideous preoccupation with death”. ‘The Home of Man’.
*The personal and private, spiritual, mind-bending Revelation! The “Theory of Evolution”, not now; some far off, and far away idea, but belongs to you; it is your VERY OWN past. This all was happening well before towns, cities, pyramids and civilisations. Also, a fact, no one can take this away from you, or explain what you are, where you came from any differently, or, by some imaginative, or, dogmatic dream. “REAL” or “REALITY”, however, much you may like it to be ‘something else’; a miracle in a world, that is, somehow made, ‘magical and made for you’, is no longer the option. ‘Knowing truth’ or ‘know the truth’. See, ‘Darwin Fish’ – ‘Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster’, ‘Pastafarianism’ – and believing in G… is like thinking the ‘teapot is orbiting Mars’. Evolutionary Theory is more wonderful and awe inspiring than anything else could possibly be! www.venganza.org For a more highbrow interpretation go to www.telegraph.co.uk In the beginning, there was the Flying Spaghetti Monster, article filed 11/09/2005. How about “The Virus of The Flying Spaghetti Monster”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_Spaghetti_Monster
