Darwin more likely than not got the term 'natural selection' from Patrick Matthew's 1831 publication

Miracle Double Immaculate Conceptions of the Blessed Virgins Darwin and Wallace of Matthew's prior published hypothesis of natural selection

'
We know that Darwin claimed he got the term "natural selection" from reading the work of breeders, but could never say from where. And we know that Matthew was the only breeder to come close to it with his natural process of selection. We know also that the term "natural selection" was not coined by Darwin. Finally, we know that Darwin did not originate the theory of natural selection. Simply, to demonstrate the persistence of the science myth that Darwin coined the term and originated the concept of natural selection, Table 6 lists 21 authors perpetuating it.'

Dr Mike Sutton: If Darwin instead got the term from Corbaux (1829) he told another lie to add to the 6 detected.

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
