Thomas Henry Huxley

Professor Thomas Henry Huxley coined the term "agnosticism" in 1869 during a meeting of the Metaphysical Society. However, some accounts say the meeting was held in 1876. Clarence Darrow wrote in his autobiography, "I had been reared by my father on books of science. Huxley's books had been household guests with us for years, and we had all of Darwin's as fast as they were published." The Story of My Life.
