"The triumphant materialist advance"

“DARWIN was taken for a great man—which, whatever else he was, he certainly was not—and he was put forward as having proved what he did not prove. But what he “had” done was to supply ammunition for the triumphant materialist advance, which became omnipresent on the field of biology and all that is allied to biology, including the origin and nature of man.”

~Hilaire Belloc
