Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled!
We must learn not to say: "Never! Better death than dishonor." We must learn to submit to law, even when imposed by aliens whom we hate and despise, and whom we believe to be blind to all considerations of righteousness. - Bertrand Russell

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).
