Sir: So William Jennings Bryan - once memorably compared to a river that was "three inches deep and six miles wide at the mouth" - attacked Darwin on the grounds that "if we taught children they came from animals they would grow up to believe they could act like them too" (letter, 25 August). If only they would! Most animals behave better towards other members of their species than do the vile great majority of human beings.
