After alluding airily to the Vehmgericht, aqua tofana, Carbonari, the Marchioness de Brinvilliers, the Darwinian
theory, the principles of Malthus, and the Ratcliff Highway murders, the article concluded by admonishing the Government and advocating a closer watch over foreigners in England.
This type must not be regarded as a fanciful figure: it is not a nebulous hope which is to be realised at some indefinitely remote period, thousands of years hence; nor is it a new species (in the Darwinian
sense) of which we can know nothing, and which it would therefore be somewhat absurd to strive after.
Thus, when a very unobtrusive Oxford man named John Boulnois wrote in a very unreadable review called the Natural Philosophy Quarterly a series of articles on alleged weak points in Darwinian

He had tried expounding to him the system of Fourier and the Darwinian

An unresolved tension between faith and reason prevails in Hemingway's work, but to fully comprehend this tension, we must first lay to rest the common misperception that his years at Oak Park High School lacked any significant introduction to Darwinian
evolutionary theory and were instead dominated by the anti-evolutionary teachings of Louis Agassiz.
Still, I may have been on to something about defections of high profile intellectuals from Darwinian
naturalism and the effect that this might have in creating conceptual space for intelligent design and ultimately winning the day for it.
