Charles Darwin

Summary

The man responsible for the near religion of "Darwinism" and the theory of evolution was a quiet, patient, and gentle man, suffering for most of his life from chronic ill-health. He rarely attended banquets given in his honor or even meetings of the Royal Society to which he was elected a Fellow before his 30th birthday. His most famous book, The Origin of Species, is considered to be the most important book of the 18th century and had an overwhelming reception. It was hailed by most of the world's scientists and far-thinking men as an inspired work of genius. Others, vehement in their condemnations, declared it was filthy blasphemy written by a monster who was already damned in body and soul.
