Quote of the Day: G.W. Foote on Evolution vs. Intelligent Design


“Evolution shows that the design argument puts the cart before the horse. Natural Selection, as Dr. Schmidt appositely remarks, accounts for adaptation as a result without requiring the supposition of design as a cause. And if you cannot deduce God from the animate world, you are not likely to deduce him from the inanimate.” –G.W. Foote (Dean Stanley’s Latest, August 1881)
