Myth #10: As a
result of the process of natural selection, the keen
intellect and creative genius of human beings is very
similar to apes; it varies only by degree.
"And in conclusion, I
would like to ask the gentleman . . . whether the ape from which
he is descended was on his grandmother's or his grandfather's
side of the family."
30 June 1860, Oxford, In a debate on Darwinism.
