Steady Misrepresentation

I was reading the January 2009 Scientific American, a special issue about Charles Darwin and evolution. On page 99 they have a quote from Darwin that I think is especially prescient:

"Great is the power of steady misrepresentation; but the history of science shows that fortunately this power does not long endure."

Charles Darwin

  1. Define 'long' Mr Darwin. It sure seems like certain misrepresentations have been going on a painfully long time. *sigh*
