Quote: Malcolm Muggeridge

The following quotation can be found on several Creationist web sites:

I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it's been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books in the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has. I think I spoke to you before about this age as one of the most credulous in history, and I would include evolution as an example.
Malcolm Muggeridge was a British journalist. As his biographer puts it, he had "a dedication to nonconformity that led him to champion many a lost cause."

When he was alive, I read some of his columns, and saw him on TV. To the best of my knowledge, he went to his grave without bothering to learn anything about science. The quoted opinion was not an informed opinion.
