Talk:J. B. S. Haldane
The widely reproduced quote about beetles might have been brought to general attention by Steven Jay Gould, who (according to a post on the STUMPERS-L list: 31 Jul 2003 by John Henderson) attributes it to Haldane speaking at a space flight conference in 1951; the lecture was not published but the quote was reproduced in the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society vol. 10, p. 156. I haven't tracked down any of these citations myself. -- wiml
