Quote: Stephen Gould on Classification

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

‘…our ability to classify both living and fossil species distinctly and using the same criteria “fit splendidly with creationist tenets. But how could a division of the organic world into discrete entities be justified by an evolutionary theory that proclaimed ceaseless change as the fundamental fact of nature?’”

Stephen Jay Gould (Professor of Geology and Paleontology, Harvard University), ‘A quahog is a quahog’, Natural History, vol. 88 (7), 1979, pp. 18-26.
