Thomas Henry Huxley Huxley was a scientist during the Victorian age when religion was being challenged by the theories and discoveries of a growing and developing science. He was interested in the "application of scientific methods of investigation to all the problems of life." Huxley persuasively argued that humans are merely animals and that TRADITIONAL religion is based on superstitions and lies. However, it is important to keep in mind that Huxley also saw value in spiritual beliefs. He once said that: "…a deep sense of religion was compatible with the entire absence of theology." Huxley felt that humans are a very special type of animal because we are endowed with a moral sense and with freedom of the will. We are different from other animals also in our tendency to departing from nature rather than blindly following it. Huxley had the following written on his tomb and the statement is typical of his view of life: "Be not afraid, ye waiting hearts that weep For still he giveth His beloved sleep

Organized religion, being founded on superstition, is, perforce, not scientific. And all that which is not scientific that is, truthful must be bolstered up by force, fear and falsehood. Thus we always find slavery and organized religion going hand in hand.
Elbert Hubbard , from Ira D. Cardiff, What Great Men Think of Religion, quoted from James A. Haught , ed., 2000 Years of Disbelief Theology, by diverting the attention of men from this life to another, and by endeavoring to coerce all men into one religion, constantly preaching that this world is full of misery, but the next world would be beautiful or not, as the case may be has forced on men the thought of fear where otherwise there might have been the happy abandon of nature.

Addison, Joseph
The eldest son of a cleric, Addison eventually found himself at Oxford (Queen's and Magdalen). He wrote favourable (whether commissioned, or not) articles concerning certain powerful people and their works; he was duly rewarded with a pension of £300 which allowed Addison to travel extensively throughout the continent for four years. With the victory at Blenheim , in 1704, Addison was commissioned to write The Campaign and this led to further political patronage; he was appointed as a Commissioner of Excise Taxes (the only significant taxes they had in those days). The job as a commissioner, presumably, took little of Addison's time and he was left to pursue his writing. While he had contributed to the Tatler (started by Steele in 1709), Addison started his own paper in 1711, the Spectator ("In the Spectator may be traced the foundations of all that is sound and healthy in modern English thought."

B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Aldous (Leonard) Huxley (1894-1963) English novelist and critic, grandson of the prominent biologist T.H. Huxley (see further below) and brother of Julian Huxley, who also was a biologist. Aldous Huxley's production was wide. Besides novels he published travel books, histories, poems, plays, and essays on philosophy, arts, sociology, religion and morals. Among Huxley's best known novels is BRAVE NEW WORLD, which is one of the classical works of science fiction along with George Orwell 's Nineteen-Eighty-Four . The word "utopia" comes from Thomas More's novel Utopia . In his later years Huxley wrote two books about mind-altering drugs. "Half of the human race lives in manifest obedience to the lunar rhythm; and there is evidence to show that the psychological and therefore the spiritual life, not only of women, but of men too, mysteriously ebbs and flows with the changes of the moon. There are unreasoned joys, inexplicable miseries, laughters and remorses without a cause. Their sudden and fantastic alternations constitute the ordinary weather of our minds. These moods, of which the more gravely numinous may be hypostasized as gods, the lighter, if we will, as hobgoblins and fairies, are the children of the blood and humours. But the blood and humours obey, among many other masters, the changing moon. Touching the soul directly through the eyes and, indirectly, along the dark channels of the blood, the moon is doubly a divinity."

    The story
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895), © Geological Society/NHMPL In July 1860, a fiery debate was raging over a monumental subject… the story of our past and how it linked to the history of life on Earth. In the previous year, British naturalist Charles Darwin had published a book, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection’ (usually referred to as The Origin of Species). In the book, Darwin set out his ideas about how species evolved through time. One controversial idea he proposed was that if natural selection drove change and if all life was interconnected, then humans were descended from apes and not created by God. The implications of Darwin’s theory caused uproar from the Church. Darwin had perhaps anticipated this reaction. He had even delayed publishing his theory for 15 years. It was only when he received a friendly letter from a young naturalist named Alfred Russel Wallace containing an essay outlining a theory of evolution almost identical to his own that he was spurred into action.

Huxley: Darwin's Bulldog
Thomas Henry Huxley was called " Darwin's bulldog" for being a pugnacious defender of evolution. In this caricature, note the crossed arms, set jaw (decidedly bulldoggish), and withering look. Huxley, an expert debater, was clearly viewed as an intellectual powerhouse who did not yield to opponents. Credits: From British Vanity Fair , No. 117, January 28, 1871.

The Age of Darwin Backgrounder Huxley: Darwin's Bulldog: Just as the writer of a song may not be its best performer, Charles Darwin's genius lay more in developing the theory of natural selection than in forcefully promoting it in the world. For that, there was Thomas Henry Huxley , such an aggressive defender of evolution that he was known as "Darwin's bulldog."
The early life of Huxley (1825-1895) was much different from the privileged existence of Darwin. He was one of eight children, growing up outside of London without much money. He left school early, trained to be a doctor, and educated himself in science, history, and philosophy, becoming one of the most broadly informed and influential figures in Victorian science.
Like Darwin, Huxley studied natural history while traveling on a naval ship. Initially, Huxley did not accept evolution at all. But Darwin converted him with the

Human Prehistory: An Exhibition
Sir Charles Lyell (1797-1875) was a British geologist. In his Principles of Geology (3 volumes, 1830-33), Lyell conclusively showed that the earth was very old and had changed its form slowly, mainly from conditions such as erosion. Lyell was able to date the ages of rocks by using fossils embedded in the stone as time indicators. Charles Darwin made use of Lyell's data on fossils for his theory of evolution. Lyell himself had believed that the various species of plants and animals had remained unchanged since they were created. When confronted with Darwin's findings, he admitted "I now realize I have been looking down the wrong road." He became one of Darwin's strongest supporters. Lyell was born in Scotland. He studied geology at Oxford University and traveled on several geological expeditions in Europe and North America. But the first and one of the strongest supporters of Darwin's theory was Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895). A British anatomist and physical anthropologist, Huxley became the foremost advocate of the Darwinian theory and he was often called 'Darwin's bulldog'. In his book Evidence as to Man's Place in Nature (1863) offered proof for Darwin's thesis of natural selection. He was Professor of the Royal College of Surgeons and President of the Royal Society.

HUXLEY, THOMAS HENRY Mentally and physically, he wrote, I am a piece of my mother. Her maiden name was Rachel Withers. She came of Wiltshire people, he adds, and describes her as a typical example of the Iberian variety. He tells us that her most distinguishing characteristic was rapidity of thought. . . That peculiarity has been passed on to me in full strength (Essays, i. There is no progression from a lower to a higher type, but merely a more or less complete evolution of one type (Phil. Trans., 1853, p. 63). As Chalmers Mitchell points out, this statement is of great historical interest. Huxley definitely uses the word evolution, and admits its existence within the great groups. He had not, however, rid himself of the notion that the archetype was a property inherent in the group. Herbert Spencer, whose acquaintance he made in 1852, was unable to convert him to evolution in its widest sense (Life, i. 168). He could not bring himself to acceptance of the theoryowing, no doubt, to his rooted aversion from a priori reasoningwithout a mechanical conception of its mode of operation. In his first interview with Darwin, which seems to have been about the same time, he expressed his belief in the sharpness of the lines of demarcation between natural groups, and was received with a humorous smile (Life, i. 169). The doctrine of evolution is no speculation, but a generalization of certain facts . . . classed by biologists under the heads of Embryology and of Palaeontology(Essays, v. 42). Earlier in 1881 he had asserted even more emphatically that if the hypothesis of evolution had not existed, the palaeontologist would have had to invent it (Essays, iv. 44).

Communicated by Sir Charles Lyell and J. D. Hooker.
Journal of the proceedings of the Linnean Society: Zoology On June 18th, 1858, Darwin, well launched into writing his long-planned multi-volume work on species, was shocked to receive a letter mailed in February by a fellow-naturalist on his way to New Guinea. The letter propounded a theory of natural selection in species development eerily like the theory he had himself long hugged to himself as the culmination of his researches. Influential allies immediately took charge, and arranged that both theories should be read into the scientific record on July 1st, a bare two weeks after Wallace's bombshell had arrived. Wallace, long an admirer of Darwin, took it all with remarkable good grace, but Darwin had to abandon his full-scale book and instead prepare the preliminary overview of his theory that we know as The Origin of Species "The most important biological book ever written"

78. Thomas Henry Huxley [Internet Encyclopedia Of Philosophy]
Brief biography of Thomas Henry Huxley, inventor of the term agnosticism.
Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895)
Thomas Henry Huxley, the distinguished zoologist and advocate of Darwinism, madeseveral incursions into philosophy. From his youth he had studied its problems unsystematically; he had a way of going straight to the point in any discussion; and, judged by a literary standard, he was a great master of expository and argumentative prose. Apart from his special work in science, he had an important influence upon English thought through his numerous addresses and essays on the topics of science, philosophy, religion, and politics. Among the most important of his papers relevant here are those entitled 'The Physical Basis of Life' (1868), and 'On the Hypothesis that Animals are Automata' (1874), along with a monograph on Hume (1879) and the Romanes lecture Ethics and Evolution (1893). Huxley is credited with the invention of the term 'agnosticism' to describe his philosophical position: it expresses his attitude towards certain traditional questions without giving any clear delimitation of the frontiers of the knowable. He regards consciousness as a collateral effect of certain physical causes, and only an effectnever also a cause. But, on the other hand, he holds that matter is only a symbol, and that all physical phenomena can be analyzed into states of consciousness. This leaves mental facts in the peculiar position of being collateral effects of something that, after all, is only a symbol for a mental fact; and the contradiction is left without remark.

Thomas Henry Huxley (1825 - 1895)
Born in Ealing, at the age of ten Huxley's family moved to Coventry. When he was thirteen, he was apprenticed to his uncle, a surgeon at the local hospital, where he was introduced to the art of dissection. Two years later he moved to London and was apprenticed to a doctor in the East End. In 1841, he enrolled at Sydenham College, a small school that trained doctors for the inner city slums. He won a scholarship to study at Charing Cross Hospital, a new hospital designed to treat the poor. Here he produced his first scientific paper in 1845: On a Hitherto Undescribed Structure in the Human Hair Sheath described a new layer of cells in the hair follicle, now known as 'Huxley's Layer'. After two years he passed his exams, and joined the Navy as an Assistant Surgeon to help pay off his debts. He was posted to HMS Rattlesnake, a ship bound for New Guinea to survey the Torres Strait. The voyage was eventful. The ship was damaged by storms almost immediately after setting sail, an exploration party travelling around Australia suffered severe casualties, and the captain died. However, Huxley was able to collect and study marine invertebrates and establish their correct classification. He wrote up his findings in a couple of papers that he dispatched to the dead captain's father, the Bishop of Norwich, in the hope that they would ensure his place as a scientist when he returned.
