Charles Robert Darwin FRS (1809-1882) was an English naturalist. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestry, and proposed the scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection. He published his theory with compelling evidence for evolution in his 1859 book On the Origin of Species, overcoming scientific rejection of earlier concepts of transmutation of species.
Charles Darwin, by Julia Margaret Cameron, 1868~ Charles Robert Darwin, FRS was an English naturalist. He hypothesized the theory of evolution, presenting facts which established how all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors. (Called Mr. Evolution by many, he is viewed almost like a god to Atheists or antitheists. Some regard him as the author of the scientist's bible, but these are merely opinions and conjecture)
