Evolution quotes #23

"These peaceable theories of human origins, like the best-in-man idea, become 'a mirror which reflected back only those aspects of human experience which its authors wanted to see….This is precisely what we would expect of a scientific myth.'"

Roger Lewin (noted science journalist), Bones of Contention (New York, NY: A Touchstone Book published by Simon & Schuster Inc., 1987), p. 318 citing "The Myth of Human Evolution," in New Universities Quarterly, vol. 35, p. 432 (1981)
