SIR,-Commander Acworth, in his answer to my letter, writes: " The attempted harmonising of Christianity with any form of Darwinism is as irrational as Darwinism itself-a theory which assaults reason at every point." Agreed. However, I was not talking of Darwinism, but of Evolution-which is an entirely different thing.
Let us restate the case once more. One problem is: Has evolution occurred? Another problem is: How has it occurred? Darwin's theory of Natural Selection attempted to explain the " how " in a manner which seemed plausible to many and thus made the whole idea of evolution more popular than it had been before. But if we refuse to believe that natural selection can bred higher types, that does not mean that we must empty the child with the bath and reject evolution altogether.
