Overview

Huxley's reservations on natural selection were of the type "until selection and breeding can be seen to give rise to varieties which are infertile with each other, natural selection cannot be proved”. Huxley’s position on selection was agnostic; yet he gave no credence to any other theory.

My way so many issues are clarified and problems solved; no other theory does nearly so well".
