Talk by a member of Leeds NWR
Carreen Dew, a member of Leeds NWR, will give a talk on Charles Darwin. Darwin developed a theory of evolution by natural selection but hesitated for 20 years before publishing. When he did, it caused an uproar that, to this day, rumbles on. This talk outlines his childhood, education, and 5-year voyage on HMS Beagle. It touches on his marriage and happy family life as well as his persistent ill health. It discusses reasons for the fierce opposition of theologians and nineteenth century society to his controversial theory.
