When did Charles Darwin come up with his evolution theory?
Darwin was in the Galapagos Islands August to September 1834. It was there that he began wondering about evolution. He returned to England in 1836, and in 1837 Darwin started his first notebook on evolution, secretly.

Who published his own theory of evolution by natural selection about the same time as Charles Darwin?
Alfred Russel Wallace.
Who working independently from Charles Darwin developed a theory of evolution due to natural selection?
That would be Alfred Russel Wallace.
Charles Darwin did not "come up" with evolution. Evolution always existed, and Darwin rather eloquently explained one theory (or a number of theories, depending on how you rea…d his work) on how evolution takes place. during his voyage to South America on the HMS Beagle, Darwin began to notice the differences between very closely related species, as well as the specialization of other species to certain tasks. Combined with the differences of isolates species (ie those on the Galapagos Island) he observed what he thought to be evidence of the theory of natural selection. Another young man was thinking along the same lines in malasia at the time, his name was Wallace, and he communicated dearly with Darwin thought the writing of "the Origin of Species". There is little dispute as to whether this stands as a viable scientific theory. There is not much that can prove it wrong, although science has continued to enhance natural selection and the other theories of evolution over time. there are many examples of evolution, which happen for a variety of reasons, and further study will help you learn the differences.
Charles Darwin's theory suggests all eukaryotes share common ancestry and changed to conform to their environment via natural selection. Scientists accept evolution as most of… the accumulated evidence strongly supports that theory. The theory does not depend upon belief, it depends upon what is observed (the fossil record) combined with what can be demonstrated (inherited changes and natural selection). Answer: All reputable scientists in the areas of biology and genetics accept Darwin's Theory of Evolution as proposed in "Origin of Species". At the time of writing Darwin was unaware of genetic theory (traits are passed down by genes) and so does not interlace the two ideas. Catholic Stance on Darwins Theroy First few chapters of the Bible, i.e. up to the point of Abraham's begging, is classified as Pre-Historic chapters. The roman catholic church, who is the author of the modern bible, do not take these chapters literally. It was a story written by Moses to the Israelites. The Roman Catholic Doctrine does not oppose Darwin's theory or for that matter any scientific theory that explains the beginning of the Universe, let alone the Earth. The message of the creation of the earth is, simply, Whatever the beginning was, it Was God who let it occur.
Which contemporary of Charles Darwin also developed a theory of evolution by means of natural selection?
Alfred Russel Wallace. Google him.
He had problems reconciling them, but in the end, he knew he had it right. And that was before he even had DNA analysis to back it up. Darwin Darwin just documented hi…s observations. He never said he was wrong, and did not believe he was wrong. He did have a hard time reconciling what he observed, when compared to his religious understanding of things, but make no mistake, he believed what he was observing was real. "You will be greatly disappointed (by the forthcoming book); it will be grievously too hypothetical. It will very likely be of no other service than collocating some facts; though I myself think I see my way approximately on the origin of the species. But, alas, how frequent, how almost universal it is in an author to persuade himself of the truth of his own dogmas." Charles Darwin, 1858 in a letter to a colleague regarding the concluding chapters of his Origin of Species. As quoted in 'John Lofton's Journal', The Washington Times, 8 February 1984. "Why then is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain; and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and serious objection which can be urged against the theory. The explanation lies, as I believe in the extreme imperfection of the geological record." Charles Darwin, 'On the imperfection of the geological record', chapter X, The Origin of the Species, J.M. Dent & Sons Ltd, London, 1971, pp 292-293. Thus, even though Darwin saw some of the problems with his theory and suggested ways they might show its correctness either way, there is no evidence he believed or thought he was wrong for putting it forward.
The theory of evolution by natural selection simply summed up. The nonrandom survival and reproductive success of randomly varying organisms.
Charles Darwin discovered the Theory of Evolution in 1985 when he was looking at some birds:).
The mechanisms for evolution. Lamark had a concept called acquired characteristics, an organism " needed " to evolve and any development of the organism, say developed muscles…, could be passed on to progeny. Darwin's theory showed all organisms as variants and those with the best adaptions to their environment were reproductively successful and passed these traits on to progeny and over time the population evolved.
No, that was after Darwin.
It was basically survival of the fittest, smartest and fastest. The idea of differential features. Charles Darwin was a scientist and genetic GENEious ( …

Charles Darwin had gone on his first voyage that took him to the Galapagos Islands. On that only isolated island he found 12 different kinds of finches- all with differe…nt beaks. Their habitats also differed according to their different beaks. Throughthese observations he came up with his theories.
Charles Darwin went to an island (Galapagos)where he studied the beaks of finches. He noticed that the although the birds were from the same species, they looked different. Th…is is how he worked out that "Species change over time to adapt to their environment."
