One would like to learn of the nature of the after-life - what about God, is there a Heaven, etc. But all the "messages" I have heard relayed through the "medium" from the "spirits" have been entirely banal, e. Darwin, of course, didn't believe in spiritualism, but his cousin Hensleigh Wedgewood did and continually tried to persuade Darwin to attend seances to witness the wonderful phenomena.
Eventually in , Darwin sent his son George and his famous supporter Thomas H Huxley along to a seance. They witnessed a guitar play "by itself" and some bottles move around but they were both convinced it was mere trickery.
The trial of Slade attracted widespread media attention. Lankester had attended a seance conducted by Slade and had submitted questions to Slade to ask the spirits when he summoned them up.
The Folly of Scientism
During the seance the questions were put one by one to the spirits who mysteriously wrote the answers on a slate. During the session Lankester suddenly snatched the slate from Slade and found the written answer to a question not yet asked. He denounced Slade as "a scoundrel and an imposter". Wallace testified in Slade's defence.
He had witnessed the phenomenon of "spirit writing", but he would not speculate on whether or not the writings were written by spirits. However, he stoutly declared Slade to be an honest person and as incapable of fraud as any scientist. At the end of the day Slade was sentenced to three months' hard labour, but his conviction was later successfully appealed and he never served a sentence.
The story has an ironic postscript. Lankester went on to be appointed director of the British Museum of Natural History.
silmazase.tk In he fell foul of another fraud. But this time the fraud was perpetrated by scientists and Lankester was completely taken in. The fraud was the Piltdown man hoax. Bones were unearthed at Piltdown, 25 miles from Darwin's home, and presented as evidence of a missing link "ape-man". The whole thing was a forgery, but Lankester and a generation of natural scientists, full of enthusiasm for the Darwin-Wallace theory, uncritically swallowed the story.
