…before you attempt to discredit Darwin’s theory of evolution.
Darwin’s theory is an excellent example of conroversy created out of nothing but gossip, speculation and misinformation.
I think nearly every question or concern in the essay is addressed carefully and in detail in “On the Origin of Species”.
Also, Darwin was a religious man. I don’t understand the conflict between religion and science. It seems to me that they have the common goal (ostensibly at least) of furthering the cause of general understanding. The only way that conflict makes sense is if those individuals fomenting the conflict are more concerned with power and control than with the process of enlightenment (one cancels the other).
