Charles Darwin: The Man Who was Considered a Failure at School and University


Charles Darwin was a British naturalist who is best-known as one of the most famous and influential scientists of 19th century. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestry, and created the scientific theory where he explained the branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process of natural selection.

In 1818, Darwin was enrolled at Dr. Butler’s Shrewsbury School but he showed least interest in studies. He wrote his experience on school education, “The school as a means of education to me was simply a blank. I learned absolutely nothing except by amusing myself reading and experimenting with chemistry.” Later, he could not complete his study in medicine and was terminated. After giving up his medical career, his father told him, “You care for nothing but shooting dogs and catching rat and and you will be nothing but a disgrace to yourself and all of your family.” After his failure in finishing his studies in medicine, he was sent to the Christ’s College, Cambridge in 1827 to study theology with a view to be intended as a clergyman and he could not concentrate and returned home in 1831. In his autobiography, he stated, “I was considered by all my masters and my father, a very ordinary boy, rather below the common standard of intellect.”

Finally, Darwin chose to pursue his dream, exploring nature and understanding species. According to Julian Huxley, Darwin’s idea “is the most powerful and most comprehensive idea that has ever arisen on earth. It helps us understand our origins…We are part of a total process, made of the same matter and operating by the same energy as the rest of the cosmos, maintaining and reproducing by the same type of mechanism on the rest of life.”

Summer beach-reading season is just beginning, and already several books have broken out from the pack, such as Walter Isaacson's biography of Albert Einstein, and Conn and Hal Iggulden's "The Dangerous Book for Boys."
But the biggest surprise is a blazing attack on God and religion that is flying off bookshelves, even in the Bible Belt. "God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything," by Christopher Hitchens, wasn't expected to be a blockbuster. Its publisher, Twelve, a fledgling imprint owned by France's Lagardère SCA, initially printed a modest 40,000 copies

Who admits he set out to deny evolution in order to please FATHER MOON. Icons of evolution. THat's the scientific PROOF we're ignoring..........Do you even know what proof is??????
In 1976, Jonathan Wells a student in Moon's seminary, answered his leader's call. Wells writes, "Father's [Moon's] words, my studies, and my prayers convinced me that I should devote my life to destroying Darwinism, just as many of my fellow Unificationists had already devoted their lives to destroying Marxism. When Father chose me to enter a PhD program in 1978, I welcomed the opportunity to prepare myself for battle

Why was Charles Darwin considered to be a “revolutionary”?

I know some but not very detailed. Help please.

He developed his theory of evolution, which was somewhat of a new idea at the time (there had previously been such theories, such as the Lamarckian theory of evolution, which was kind of like Darwin's except that according to it changes in populations occured within the span of a lifetime whereas Darwin's theory said that changes occured in the span of 1000s of yrs, etc)

he was considered a revolutionary by the Church because the Bible believes that all species were placed on Earth by God the way they are today, whereas Darwin's theory doesn't involve God much & says…
