"Let me try to make crystal clear what is established beyond reasonable
doubt, and what needs further study, about evolution. Evolution as a
process that has always gone on in the history of the earth can be doubted
only by those who are ignorant of the evidence or are resistant to evidence,
owing to emotional blocks or to plain bigotry. By contrast, the mechanisms
that bring evolution about certainly need study and clarification. There
are no alternatives to evolution as history that can withstand critical
examination. Yet we are constantly learning new and important facts about
evolutionary mechanisms."
[Theodosius Dobzhansky "Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the
Light of Evolution", American Biology Teacher vol.35 (March 1973)
reprinted in EVOLUTION VERSUS CREATIONISM, J. Peter Zetterberg ed.,
ORYX Press, Phoenix AZ 1983]
