This issue's quotes:--Adlai Stevenson, American statesman (1835-1914)
"...it is difficult to picture the great Creator conceiving of a program of one creature (which He has made) using another living creature for purposes of experimentation. There must be other, less cruel ways of obtaining knowledge."
"Evolution as such is no longer a theory for a modern author. It is as much a fact as that the earth revolves around the sun."
--Ernest Mayr, evolutionary biologist
