Ernst Haeckel

Ernst Haeckel

German evolutionary biologist, a representative of scientific materialism, a supporter and advocate of the doctrine of Charles Darwin
Where faith commences, science ends. Both these arts of the human mind must be strictly kept apart from each other. Faith has its origin in the poetic imagination; knowledge, on the other hand, originates in the reasoning intelligence of man. Science has to pluck the blessed fruits from the tree of knowledge, unconcerned whether these conquests trench upon the poetical imaginings of faith or not.More Ernst Haeckel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Phylogeny and ontogeny are, therefore, the two coordinated branches of morphology. Phylogeny is the developmental history [Entwickelungsgeschichte] of the abstract, genealogical individual; ontogeny, on the other hand, is the developmental history of the concrete, morphological individual.More Ernst Haeckel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is, however, a most astonishing but incontestable fact, that the history of the evolution of man as yet constitutes no part of general education. Indeed, our so-called "educated classes" are to this day in total ignorance of the most important circumstances and the most remarkable phenomena which Anthropogeny has brought to light.More Ernst Haeckel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We are compelled by reflection to recognize that God is not to be placed against the material world [as in Christianity], but must be placed as a 'divine power' or 'moving spirit' within the cosmos itself ... All the wonderful phenomena of nature around us, organic as well as inorganic, are only various products of one and the same original force.More Ernst Haeckel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Mental differences between the lowest men and the animals are less than those between the lowest and the highest man.More Ernst Haeckel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
