Can you provide a link for that quote?
I've looked for it via Google, and am unable to find it.
I love the quote by Dr. Collin Patterson, past head of the zoology section of the British museum -
"It occurred to me that after studying this stuff for over 25 years there wasn't one thing I knew about it - that I could prove was true"
"I posted this question to a very prestigious group of evolutionists and and all I got was silence for a long time until one person spoke up and stated 'there's one thing I do know, it shouldn't be taught in High School'".
I personally contacted Dr. Patterson and asked him about this and he confirmed it. Being familiar with the animal life and lack of intermediates in Alaska, I asked him about this issue and he stated - "My friends in the tropics say the same thing".
His comments were transcribed from a tape of a conference in Chicago. I called him in 1990 to verify its validity, context and permission to repeat it.
To be fair, he did author a book called "Evolution", before he made those comments. At the end of our conversation he encouraged me in my "quest for truth" (his words).
