Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled!
The Jesus written about in the new testament is sort of a collage, many many of the miracles and the details of his life - the kind of things he would put on his curriculum vitae or resume - these are repeat stories. Whether there was in fact a historical Jesus or not - our sources indicate that he was a witch or a sorcerer and a guy that had his eyes on the ladies, and not the greatest guy in the world, and we don’t think he’s coming back. - Felix Rogin

Darwin and Galton Attend Séance.
Along with many other prominent thinkers of the time Darwin and Frances Galton (founder of eugenics) attend a Séance. Many people hold Darwin up as on of the fathers of current day science, yet around 15 years after Darwin publishes origin of the species he would publicly attend with a group of men trying to talk to dead people. One article does state that Darwin said it was ’all imposture’, yet the quote is very brief.

Other attendees: Author George Eliot, philologist F. W. H. Myers (who was so enthused by this experience he founded the Society of Psychical Research a few years later).
