Believers In Evolution Speak About Evolution #1

This month is the 150th anniversary of the publication of "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life". This year is also Darwin's 200th birthday. In celebration I'll be posting quotes from people who support evolution.

Today's first quote is from L. Harrison Matthews, from the Introduction to the 1977 edition of Origin of Species, page xxii.

"[The theory of evolution] forms a satisfactory faith on which to base our interpretation of nature."

R.E.D. Clark, Victoria Institute, 1943, page 63 wrote:

"If complex organisms ever did evolve from simpler ones, the process took place contrary to the laws of nature, and must have involved what may rightly be termed the miraculous."
