    >Further the so-called works of Darwin are clearly derivative from previous ideas. His geology on the Beagle voyage has many echoes of Lyell's Princilpes of Geology and thus applying the rules some use for NT criticism could not be written by Darwin. In the Origin of Species and other works there are many unacknowledged references to earlier writers so cannot be by Darwin.<

    Furthermore, many of his statements clearly address the interests of his later followers and so must have been antedated forgeries. I'm sure the Darwin Seminar threw those out too.
