Charles Darwin: The Evolutionary
The History of Charles Darwin
A British scientist, eager to learn all that he could about the world, Charles Darwin embarked on a journey to find the truth. During the time of Darwin’s learning’s, most of the English society believed that the world was created in 7 days, as stated in the Bible. After changing his studies from medicine to divinity, Darwin ventured on a 5 year scientific expedition, circumnavigating the globe, to find answers to his questions and gain a deeper understanding about the truth behind human creation. During his sailing expedition, Darwin spent much time at the Galapagos Islands, noting the similarities and differences between the species of birds which called this region home. While Darwin was still contemplating the theory of evolution, at this stage, he noted that the birds had evolved to better survive the living conditions of their changing environments. During the final stretch of the voyage, Darwin visited the shores of Australia, eager to witness further signs of evolution and explore this foreign land. Upon returning to England, Darwin began to further question the ideas and possibilities behind evolution, steered by his respect of the investigations and work performed by Malthus. Not until 20 years after his initial expedition, did Darwin publicise his theory. Combining his thoughts with the similar thinking of Alfred Russel Wallace, Darwin was able to confirm and support his theory regarding natural selection and evolution amongst both plant and animal species.
