Misrepresentations of Darwin
Charles Darwin’s work is often mischaracterized, and he is often misquoted.
The authors at the Darwin Correspondence Project published Six things Darwin never said – and one he did. You’ll be surprised. For example, Charles Darwin never said or wrote:
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
I found this site while researching a topic on Darwin, and was amused to find Charles Darwin did say this:
I am quite conscious that my speculations run quite beyond the bounds of true science.’
