100th anniversary of the death of Alfred Russel Wallace

I expect YEC David Coppedge will censor me asap:

These are NOT my words:
http://wallacefund.info/faqs-myths-misconceptions
"Was Wallace really more Darwinian than Darwin himself? Yes, if by "Darwinian" we mean an acceptance that most evolutionary change is driven by the process of natural selection";
"Did Wallace come to believe in Intelligent Design (ID)? Well, he was never a creationist and he certainly was not a Christian! The notion that the spirit world guides evolution (which Wallace developed when he was in his late 70's) is scientifically untestable and therefore falls outside the realm of Science. It is curious that believers in Christian Intelligent Design have adopted Wallace as their 'guru', even though Wallace was a pagan, 'table rapping' Spiritualist!"

I also saw this (I did not watch the programme online though English subtitles are available):

Good that you are giving prominence to Alfred Russel Wallace (please note the spelling)on the 100 th anniversary of his death.

If things had been different creationists would now be talking about Wallaceism and not Darwinism, but for a twist of fate.

And as a corollary, the creationists would be adopting Darwin! :twisted:

'No comments have been left'. Oh yes, they HAVE. The last one asked Mr Coppedge why he did not admit that he censored two previous comments by myself (he need not name me but it is dishonest to pretend that nobody commented, implying that NOBODY disagreed).
