William R. Greg, "On the failure of 'Natural Selection' in the case of Man", Fraser's Magazine, Sept. 1868, p. 353-362
By this natural process, which is so inevitable that it cannot be conceived not to act, those best adapted to live, live; those least adapted, die.
"... those least adapted die ...." is a tautology3. It is remarkable that somebody with the intellect of John Wilkins fails to comprehend this. The fact that the dinosaurs are dead obviously implies they weren't adapted, this doesn't explain why though they are dead, it only states the same fact twice.
