Natural selection "may be compared to the analytic treatment of the Theory of Gases, in which it is possible to make the most vaired assumptions as to the acidental circomstances, and even the essential nature of individual molecules, and yet to develop the general laws as to the behavior of gases, leaving but a few fundamental constants to be determined by experiment
