My Year of Darwin 11/10/2014: perhaps some circularity in one of Darwin's laws

 Charles Darwin

"Although new and important modifications may not arise from reversion and analogous variation, such modifications will add to the beautiful and harmonious diversity of nature." Charles Darwin, Origin of Species 1st edition (on Kindle)

Reversions are the modification of organisms to be more like their ancestors and analogous variation is the evolution of similarity in unrelated organisms.
