Wallace and the creationists

Postby Brian Jordan » Mon Jan 19, 2015 6:42 pm

A remarkable tale of Alfred Russel Wallace's recklessly betting with a creationist that he could prove the Earth was round. Although he easily did, years of lies and vilification cost him in the end. Parts of this story could very easily relate to today, with only minor changes.
