ABSTRACT
This article discusses the scientific accomplishments of naturalist Charles Darwin. In early September 1830, Charles Darwin, just 21 years old, nervously approached the Admiralty buildings in London, England. On at least one thing most Darwin scholars agree. Had Darwin not sailed aboard the Beagle he would not have arrived at his theory of evolution by natural selection. To Darwin in early 1837 it seemed positively medieval to imagine God stepping in with each new geological or climatic shift to create a new suite of species. Until early in the 20th century, only a minority of biologists accepted natural selection as the main driving force of evolutionary change.
