I was reading this piece on Darwin and Intelligent Design, and one line stood out:
So what would Charles Darwin have to say about the dust-up between today’s evolutionists and intelligent designers?
Shy and reclusive, Darwin disliked argument. He also was plagued by poor health. In particular, he suffered from terrible flatulence that made him reluctant to venture out in public.
Even after he became one of the most famous and controversial men of his time, he was always content to let surrogates argue his case.
I am not sure the Chicago Tribune has accurately depicted who suffers when an individual has flatulence.
