Jim Button saves the Evolution Theory

What have Michael Ende and Charles Darwin in common? An island with two hills within the deep blue sea? Not bad at all. Because Darwin had indeed a little black boy as his companion on his research journeys to the Galapagos islands. His name was Jeremy Button, in German Jim Button. In her article in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung from 16 December 2008, Julia Voss shows fascinating parallels that make the scales fall from our eyes. Was Michael Ende inspired by Darwin, and is Jim Button also some kind of revenge on National Socialism? Possible it might be, and many of Julia Voss’s arguments point in that direction. And if not, it is in any case well invented! The article is certainly worth reading. You find Julia Voss’s article using the following link:
