Darwin, Charles (1809-82)
Darwin struck upon the theory of evolution. All things have slowly evolved over an unimaginable amount of time, into what they are today. This natural law is a process which Darwin called natural selection. This theory was supported by real evidence, meaning we no longer had to subscribe to the notion that every species had been created, by some unknown means, whole, and then, to have come through the ages unchanged.
