ABSTRACT
The article offers a look at the development of Charles Darwin's ideas on science and evolution. Darwin traveled on the HMS Beagle to the Galápagos islands, where he began to formulate some of the ideas about evolution and natural selection. Later, he wrote "The Origin of Species." An exhibit on Darwin has opened at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Two anthologies on Darwin have been published recently, as well as the novel "The Darwin Conspiracy," by John Darnton. The book "Darwin: Discovering the Tree of Life," by Niles Eldredge, will accompany the exhibition. The article discusses Darwin's internal struggle to present evidence for the theory of evolution against the Biblical notion of creationism. Darwin wrote "The Descent of Man." He struggled with Christians who owned slaves and with the concept of theodicy.
