Ha! Sorry Jerry, your excuse for Darwin: being "a man of his
time", doesn't hold up.

For while the bigoted, sexist and racist Darwin was ranting:

"Man is more courageous, pugnacious, and energetic than woman
and has more inventive genius" and "Woman seems to differ from
man in mental disposition... these faculties are characteristic
of the lower races, and therefore of a past and lower state of
civilization";

the logical scientist Wallace (who first told Darwin about
`Natural Selection') was able to write:

"The position of woman in the not too distant future will be far
higher and more important than any which has been claimed for or
by her in the past. While she will be conceded full political
and social rights on an equality with man, she will be placed in
a position of responsibility and power which will render her his
superior".

I think there's a `Darwin industry' today for much the same
reason as there was a `Newton industry' in the 18th Cent. That
is, for nationalistic motives, the English establishment wanted
a science hero: and in both cases they chose the bigot and
plagiarist with the _wrong_ idea, which happened to suit the
establishment's predilections.

BTW - there's some appreciations of the work of Wallace and
Leibniz (who was bad-mouthed and plagiarized by Newton)
