Charles was born in Shrewsbury 1809. Darwin’s father was a doctor and his mother was the daughter of Josiah Wedgewood. Darwin was sent to study medicine at the age of 16 and when his family figured out that he really wasn’t a fan of a medical career; they transferred him to Cambrige so he could get trained for ministry.
For thousands and thousands of years people believe that the world was created by a supernatural being (god), due to the complexity of nature (mostly us humans and our minds). It is amazing how Charles Darwin was able to explain our existence using the Evolution of Nature.
When we think of “Evolution,” we must ask take a step back and ask ourselves… “what is evolving and why?”
“Although I am fully convinced of the truth of the views given in this volume I by no means expect to convince experienced naturalists whose minds are stocked with a multitude of facts all viewed, during a long course of years, from a point of view directly opposite to mine. But I look with confidence to the future to young and rising naturalists, who will be able to view both sides of the question with impartiality.” (Charles Darwin)
“In scientific investigations, it is permitted to invent any hypothesis and, if it explains various large and independent classes of facts, it rises to the rank of a well-grounded theory.”(Charles Darwin)
“Man with all his noble qualities, with sympathy which feels for the most debased, with benevolence which extends not only to other men but to the humblest living creature, with his god-like intellect which has penetrated into the movements and constitution of the solar system- with all these exalted powers- Man still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin.” (Charles Darwin)
