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.
