My Year of Darwin 11/18/2014 Darwin's most abused quote

 Charles Darwin

"If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down." Charles Darwin, Origin of Species 1st edition (on Kindle)

And Darwin responds "But I can find out no such case."  More recently, the intelligent design community has pointed out that that there are no cases where biochemical "machinery" can arise via Darwinian evolution. However, these are two different points. One is the lack of evidence (ID) and the other (Darwin) is pointing out positive contradictory evidence (evidence that organic machinery cannot have evolved).
