Charles Darwin, the man behind that dreadful Godless nonsense, evolution. Specifically he was co-discover of Natural Selection along with Alfred Wallace. This page is just itchin' for a biologist or historian or anyone to do something nice with. While we wait we will have to suffice with, "the bloke who kicked religion in the knackers" by writing On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.

Darwin is often a victim of the phenomenon known as quote mining. Also, he was a sock of Hitler.

Not even Wrong

Creationists often refer to people who consider evolution to be a valid scientific doctrine as "Darwinists". This is a big, ugly use of rhetoric. The biological theory that explains life is called "evolution", and those who study it are called "biologists". "Darwinist" could refer to someone who studies Darwin the person, or perhaps, if Darwin had bothered to start a system of irrational, supernatural beliefs (i.e. a "religion"), its adherents could be called "Darwinists".
