Definition of Charles Darwin

Definition of Charles Darwin adjective from the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary

(1809–82)the English naturalist who developed the theory of evolution by natural selection. As a young man he spent five years on a British ship, HMS Beagle, visiting coasts and islands in the southern part of the world. The different types of animals and plants that he found, especially on the Galapagos Islands in the Pacific, led him to believe that living things develop differently in different places over long periods of time. At that time, most western people believed that all things were created by God in seven days. Darwin returned to England in 1836 and spent the next 23 years collecting evidence to support his theory. When he published On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection (1859) it caused much argument and anger because it seemed to disagree with the story of creation in the Bible. Most people now accept the main points of Darwin’s theory, and many see it and the Bible as two ways of saying the same thing, but others, especially in the US, interpret the Bible account literally and believe that only creationism, also called creation science, should be taught in schools.

Why did people dislike the Charles Darwin theory?

Were humans disgusted to know that they came from monkeys. Did humans have a superiority complex that prevented from accepting Darwin's theory?
that prevented them*

When you disturb someone's world view when they are certain that their race or group is superior in some way to every other, you have the recipe for rebellion. Then you have the dummy who asks why monkeys aren't turning into people now when if you read the book, you see that it happened over a geological timespan, which os a little hard to observe, and only in cases where isolation occurred requiring speciation and preventing interbreeding.

Finally, some people just will not believe that humans were caused, not created, because they have a book written three or four…
