Noticed late Thursday that James Travers was using Darwin as the hook for a column. Wondered as I clicked, without meaning any particular insult to Travers, how long it would take him to crash into some J-schoolish solecism. Didn't have long to wonder. 2nd graf:
Darwin's most quotable quote could have been written for Canada's current ruling party. "It's not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change."
Sound like Darwin (or any 19th-century naturalist) to you? "Darwin's most quotable quote" is at the top of a Cambridge website's list of frequently-heard spurious Darwinisms. (Number of liberal-secularist Darwin-worshipping Star commenters who have picked up on this yet: zero.)
