Hilaire Belloc criticizes Charles Darwin’s “natural selection” with basic arithmetic:
“The exceptional product of two exceptionally endowed parents – such as a cock and a hen who glory in slightly webbed feet–diminishes in geometrical proportion with ever generation. If one in a hundred display this tiny original advantage, in the next generation only one in ten thousand will fully show the benefit, let alone increase it; and in the third generation only one in a million.”
Belloc wrote many volumes from a wide-range of topics. A good list of his works can be found at [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilaire_Belloc’s_books].
