Darwin vs. Animal Activists

Though Charles Darwin lived 150 years ago, his philosophies are still the topic of heated discussion worldwide. A recent publication on YUDU.com takes a new look at Darwin’s teaching and contrasts those against popular animal activist arguments today.

Matthew Watkinson spent 8 years as a veterinary surgeon before coming to the realization that he might be fighting natural selection, “thus making welfare problems worse, not better.” In his new book, On the Destiny of Species by Means of Natural Selection, Watkinson examines the “conservation (the preservation of unfavoured races) and Charles Darwin’s theory of natural selection (the elimination of unfavoured races).” He published this work exactly 150 years after Darwin’s On the Origin of Species.

Watkinson and his publishing company, Fish Snorkel, have published a chapter from On the Destiny of Species for free on YUDU.com as a teaser. Check it out at http://www.yudu.com/item/details/90112 and decide for yourself whether activists are merely delaying the inevitable.
