Charles Darwin was a British scientist who laid the foundations of the theory of evolution and transformed the traditional reasoning about the natural world. His theory of evolution with compelling evidence he converted in the book “On the Origin of Species”, published in 1859. The monumental work of scientific literature, which is considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology, is the result of twenty years of work. Darwin presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. It made it seem possible that even people might just have evolved - quite possibly from apes - and destroyed the prevailing orthodoxy on how the world was created.
