A word from Charles Darwin

Q: Did Charles Darwin say this? “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”

A: Nope! That was some guy called Leon Megginson in 1963. For more, see the Fake Quotes Project, a project of the Shimer Alumni Alliance.
