[OPE] Marx and Darwin: A Myth Exposed

The following page - written by the "Friends of Charles Darwin" -
exposes as myth the belief  that Marx asked Darwin if he could 
dedicate  _Capital_ to him.  Edward Aveling, it seems, asked 
Darwin (who declined the offer) if he could dedicate 
_The Student's Darwin_ to him.  Somehow that got twisted into the 
myth about Marx.


Perhaps there should be a link to this at the "Marx Myth and Legends"
<http://marxmyths.org/index.php>  site?

btw, are any Marxians planning events to commemorate the
200th birthday of Darwin on February 12, 2009?

In solidarity, Jerry
