OK, so I'll solve it. The quote is maybe more well-known than the man who spoke the sentence, Theodosius Dobzhansky, one of the unifiers of evolutionary theory and genetics, foremost promoter of the Drosophila model, and co-founder of molecular biology. I was quite astonished to learn he never won a Nobel. The quote is the title of an essay criticizing the new tendency in America to espouse ideas of creationism (of course that was in the 60s, long ago. Luckily, these times are long ov... :shock: ).

I've never heard of him either, but am short of actual embarrassment about that given my almost perfectly complete ignorance of his field.
