For I am well aware that scarcely a single point is discussed in this volume on which facts cannot be adduced, often apparently leading to conclusions directly opposite to those at which I have arrived. A fair result can be obtained only by fully stating and balancing the facts and arguments on both sides of each question; and this is here impossible.
For myself, also, I rejoice profoundly; for, thinking of so many cases of men pursuing an illusion for years, often and often a cold shudder has run through me, and I have asked myself whether I may not have devoted my life to a phantasy
"I am quite conscious that my speculations run quite beyond the bounds of true science."
First, why, if species have descended from other species by fine gradations, do we not everywhere see innumerable transitional forms? Why is not all nature in confusion, instead of the species being, as we see them, well defined?
To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.

I think the best way to handle FOTF or any of these other fringe groups that take it upon themselves to push for censorship is to form our own group FOYOFNM -Focus On Your Own Family Not Mine- and whenever these groups take to the streets/internet/email then we have to do the same and let the networks and whoever else may be concerned see which side has more support.
These groups seemingly get their way all the time because there is no organized resistance to them and/or their ideas.
Sadly its democracy working... all these people say "this is bad do away with it" the networks say "who opposes?" and they hear crickets cause there is no-one else speaking out...
just my 2 cents...
