Natural selection: fact or fancy - article by Arthur Custance

Quotes and comments;
- this is chapter two of a short work called the Survival of the UN-fit.
- The following chapter: 3. The True Harmony of Natural Communities, is also excellent.

1. 'Leo Berg, after a discussion of the imagined effects of the supposed struggle for existence pointed out that careful students of nature (26) "... could not observe any perceptible difference between the individuals which have survived and those which have perished. As far as may be judged from the available data, natural selection cuts off deviations from the standard by destroying extreme variations."
