Daily Dose of Ingersoll


The church teaches that man was created perfect, and that for
six thousand years he has degenerated. Darwin demonstrated the
falsity of this dogma. He shows that man has for thousands of ages
steadily advanced; that the Garden of Eden is an ignorant myth;
that the doctrine of original sin has no foundation in fact; that
the atonement is an absurdity; that the serpent did not tempt, and
that man did not “fall.”

Robert Green Ingersoll – “Orthodoxy”(1884)
