Giberson, Karl
September 2006
Science & Spirit;Sep/Oct2006, Vol. 17 Issue 5, p4
The author reflects on the alteration of faith on Christianity of Charles Darwin. He asserts that the first part of Darwin's professional life was an orthodox Christian and a firm believer in creation. However, when his daughter died he lost his faith. Although he created the theory of evolution he never joined generation's assault on religion and never embraced atheism.
