Back to Methuselah

An abstract from George Bernard Shaw's, 'A sample of Lamarcko-Shavian invective', de Back to Methuselah, 1921.
Un extracto de George Bernard Shaw, 'A sample of Lamarcko-Shavian invective', de Back to Methuselah, 1921.

«After all, you cannot understand Moses without imagination nor Spurgeon without metaphysics; but you can be a thorough-going Neo-Darwinian without imagination, metaphysics, poetry, conscience, or decency. For "Natural Selection" has no moral significance: it deals with that part of evolution wich has no purpose, no intelligence, and might more appropiately be called accidental selection, or better still, Un-natural selection, since nothing is more unnatural than an accident. If it could be proved that the whole universe had bee produced by such Selection, only fools and rascals could bear to live».
