A Quote by Erasmus Darwin on animals, facts, and posterity

In fact, Darwin's own grandfather anticipated the central tenet of Lamarckism by some seven years: "All animals undergo perpetual transformations; which are in part produced by their own exertions... and many of these acquired forms or propensities are transmitted to their posterity."

Erasmus Darwin (1731 - 1802)
