About this videoRuntime: 33 mins
Nick Spencer discusses the life of Charles Darwin and how he moved away from Christianity as he developed his theory of evolution by natural selection.
Charles Darwin was an English naturalist and biologist. He is best known for his contributions to the scientific theory of evolution, applying Malthus' notion of population preservation to evolution by natural selection, and descent by modification, to species. His most famous work, Origin of Species, was released by him after twenty years of anxiety. Aware of the impact it would have, he described the experience as 'like confessing a murder'.
