A Quote by Darwin on his theory of evolution
Hey guys, I'm not trying to stir the pot, and please keep this respectful. I found a quote by Darwin in my 28 years of life that I have never seen before. If you believe in evolution I would like to hear your thoughts on it.

" Natural selection cannot possibly produce any modification in a species exclusively for the good of another species; though throughout nature one species incessantly takes advantage of, and profits by, the structures of others. But natural selection can and does often produce structures for the direct injury of other animals, as we see in the fang of the adder, and in the ovipositor of the ichneumon, by which its eggs are deposited in the living bodies of other insects. If it could be proved that any part of the structure of any one species had been formed for the exclusive good of another species, it would annihilate my theory, for such could not have been produced through natural selection. "

We now see symbiotic relationships in a vast array of life, even down to the bacterial level.

Uhm....

Darwins origins of species is a 150 year old book, which although interesting and essentially explains the groundwork of the theory of evolution it's not really considered the know all end all of evolution.

Simply put Darwin was wrong on this point.
