Charles Darwin was born on 12th February 1809 in Shrubbery England. His father was Dr. Robert Waring Darwin. He had an interest in natural history at an early age. His mother …dies when he was 8 and he was brought up by his sister. When Darwin was a child he was home schooled and went a day school owned by Rev. Case. When was done with school he went to the univ. of Edinburgh at the age of 16 to study medicine Later on he gave that up and went to the univ. of Cambridge when he became a naturalist Darwin studied science, religious philosophic and literary, this is when he started his ecclesiastical career. After graduating Darwin went on the voyage of the "beagle" when his job was ~ naturalist, study rocks and collect specimens. The voyage lasted five years. When Darwin returned he had a rare illness that he had for the rest of his life. He then wrote the book " the origin of species, this book was an abstract of his theories. It was published on November 24,1859 it was sold out immediately, he died on 19th April 1882 he was buried in Westminster abbey. Charles Darwin was a Naturalist. Charles Darwin was an English naturalist who realised there was a connection between the different species of animals who had common ancestors where they had evolved. basically developed a theory of evolution. . Born: 12 February 1809 . Birthplace: Shrubbery, England . Died: 19 April 1882 (heart attack) . Best Known As: The naturalist who came up with the theory of evolution He was the first person to publish a coherent and widely accepted theory of evolution, and thus is known as the 'father' of evolution theory. Charles Darwin is one of the people who formulated the theory of evolution by natural selection. He lived in Shrubbery, England. Charles Darwin was born in 1809 and died 1882. He was the first person who established a theory about evolution that's why he is known as the "Father of Evolution" :) hey what did he do or my teacher is tricking me :P :P :P :P :P :P my teacher
He laid the ground work for the theory of evolution, and created Darwinism (Survival of the fittest.) (or Natural Selection) He traveled to the Galapagos Islands, and …on each island discovered new types of Finch birds. He then studied the environment they survived in, and theorized that they must have evolved form a similar bird, and evolved different traits to match the environment they were in. Charles Darwin DID NOT state that man evolved from the ape, or even the Chimp. He stated, in so many words, that the chimp and man (or hominids, which they are referred to) diverged into two separate and distinct species. If, for example, man evolved from the ape or the chimp, there would be no more chimps left! There is absolutely nothing within "On the Origin of the Species" that states that man evolved from the ape or the chimp. This is a farce that has evolved through time since the time Darwin released his works. Charles Darwin studied medicine at Edinburgh and for the ministry at Cambridge.
Charles Robert Darwin was born on February 12, 1809, at the family home The Mount in the town of Shrewsbury, Shropshire County, England. Darwin was the fifth of six children b…orn to Dr. Robert Waring Darwin and Susannah Wedgwood. Darwin was destined to follow in the footsteps of his paternal grandfather, the physician Erasmus Darwin, who wrote on evolutionary principles in "Zoonomia." In his early days, Darwin had his love of nature and began to collect minerals, shells, and bird eggs-a hobby which helped him later on in life. When Darwin was 8, he lost his mother. He joined the Unitarian day school the same year. After aa year, he then moved to Dr. Samuel Butler's boarding school in Shrewsbury, where he studied the works of Homer, Euclid, Virgil, Horace, William Shakespeare, Lord George Gordon Bryon, John Milton and Sir Walter Scott. Till 1825, he attended the boarding school and did not excel in studies. He loved conducting experiments and liked chemistry. he later left the boarding school and by his dad's permission, joined the University of Edinburgh for studying Medicine where he learned medicine. Hope this helps.
By putting forward a theory that wasn't that didnt agree with the churches version on the origin of the living things on the earth.
Charles Robert Darwin was a famous English scientists who lived in the 1800's. he was also a genius. Darwin thought himself science, then went on to shock the whole world scie…ntific community ,society in general, and especially the church with his ideas about our origin as well as the origins of life itself. Through careful and patient research over a long period of time Darwin made connections and came up with a surprisingly simple theory - evolution through natural selection. His theory is also known as Darwinism. Charles Darwin had a keen curiosity, , an open mind, and the capacity to think laterally. Today these qualities are as rare as they were in Charles Darwin's time
Darwin's theory of evolution contradicts the literal interpretation of creation as taken from the bible
He was English.
Darwin was named after naturalist Charles Darwin, because the harbour on which Darwin lies was found in 1839 by John Stokes, surveyor aboard the ship HMS Beagle - which was th…e ship on which Charles Darwin sailed. In December 1831, Darwin boarded the HMS Beagle to commence his five-year journey of scientific exploration. On this voyage, he collected a variety of wildlife and fossils, studying them to gradually develop his theory of natural selection.
He was put in a very good financial position by his ancestors, especially his father.
He was an English naturalist who realised and presented compelling evidence that all species of life have evolved over time from common ancestors, through the process he calle…d natural selection.

If you are referring to the capital city of Australia's Northern Territory then yes, it is. This is due to the visit paid by 'The Beagle', Charles Darwin's former ship on hi…s voyage around the world, to Port Darwin, on 9 September 1839. The captain of the ship named the newly mapped region after his former passenger. Initially Darwin was named Palmerston after the Prime Minister of Britain, Lord Palmerston, but once the settlement was established, all shipping was consigned to "Port Darwin", not Palmerston. When South Australia handed control of the Northern Territory to the Commonwealth government in 1911, the city was officially renamed Darwin.
In World War 1
He didn't. Darwin had no role in WW1, and had been dead for 32 years when the war started.
Natural Selection is what Darwin believed was the cause of evolution.
He didn't do the study of the Galapagos Finches. The people who studied these birds were biologist Peter Grant and Rosemary Grant. They looked at beak size and shape. The finc…hes are commonly called Darwin's finches, however, they really were not studied by him. They used to finches to study Darwin's Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection. In order for NS to occur there must be variation in a population, variations must be heritable, the species must be reproductively successful, and the survival and reproduction of an individual must be nonrandom. The Grants came up with 4 postulates based on the NS model. 1. Is the finch population variable? 2. Is some off the variation among individuals heritable? 3.Do individuals vary in their reproductive success? 4. Are survival and reproduction nonrandom? The overall conclusion that they made was that: when all four of Darwin's postulates are true in a population, the population will evolve; and that evolution an occur over a short period of time.
Yes, the first European ship to see Darwin harbour was the Beagle and her captain (John Clements Wickham) named it after Charles Darwin - Wickham had sailed with Darwin on the… famous 2nd voyage of the Beagle.
Darwin lost his faith because of the heap of experiences that contradicted the writings of the genesis
