“[D]espite the recommendations of famed biologist T.H. Huxley, whose famed 1860 debate with Bishop Samuel Wilberforce led to the wider acceptance of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, Parliament refused to mandate scientific education in the schools. Indeed, Eton had only added arithmetic in 1836! Instead the school imbued their students with the Victorian mythology as to Britain’s place in the world. In 1900, Germany graduated 3000 engineers, while in all of England and Wales, only 250 degrees were granted in scientific and technical fields.”
