Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled!
Many, perhaps, will think it idle to go farther in demonstrating the immorality of large families, but since there is still an abundance of proof at hand, it may be offered for the sake of those who find difficulty in adjusting old-fashioned ideas to the facts. The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. - Margaret Higgins Sanger

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).
