Quote from: billy rubin on November 19, 2023, 10:50:44 PMdarwin was reading malthus, got sick and had a fever, and the the theory of natural selection appeared to him/wallace was also reading malthus, also got sick and had a fever, and the theory of natural selection also appeared to him./^^^strange coincidence. when wallace wrote to darwin about the theory darwin is said to have freaked out and withdrew. it was others who persueaded him to do a joint presentation for the royal society.so the story goes.have you heard about the guy who stole a bunch of wallace's pricelss original bird specimens from the americas and new guinea and cut them up to sell for fishing lures that he sold on th einternet? some feathers have been recovered but the specimens themselves have been destroyed.
