Plagiarism[edit]

The first paragraph is blatent plagiarism of an essay by Richard Dawkins.Dave59 17:30, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Dawkins was quoting lock, stock and barrel from the Wells book. 81.146.19.155 18:19, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
Dawkins may have quoted some text but certainly not all of it. I've been unable to find a copy of the H.G. Wells book but the text is clearly written in the style of Dawkins. The directly quoted material is okay since the H.G. Wells book appears to be out of copyright, but there is still a large amount of text belonging to Dawkins that is protected by copyright. This is plagiarism - plain and simple. Thepreacher 11:38, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Can anyone else offer a decent rewrite of this section? The whole page (as Dave59 said) has ripped off A Devil's Chaplain... Jazzwick

The last three publications in the reference section (Hansen, Freebairn and Palmer) can be used as alternative sources that may be easier to find then Wells' biography.--ChristopheS (talk) 17:14, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Citation[edit]

I believe, although I'm not sure, that the "S.J.C." whose initials alone are at the foot of the 14th Edition 1972 Britannica article cited as a source, is Sydney John Chapman who is "S.J.C." in the earlier 1911 Britannica's list of contributors. Uncle G (talk) 11:35, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
