Asked in Charles Darwin, Evolution
Was Darwin's theory rejected?
At the time some scientists did reject the theory, but by the end of Darwin's life the theory was, tentatively, accepted. Then genetics took off and the theory was panned again. 1900 t0 1932. Then the modern synthesis arose blending genetics with systematic thought, paleontology and botany and the theory of evolution by natural selection was on much firmer footing The theory has undergone many modifications since Darwin's day, as any scientific theory does, but, aside from some minor scientific challenges, the theory is still standing more than 150 years later.

How has the Scientific theory of evolution developed over the past 300 years?
Before Charles Darwin published his theory in the 1850s, there really was no scientific theory of evolution. Thus the theory is actually only a little over 150 years old. In the 1920s there was a revolution in our understanding of genetics, which was incorporated into the theory of evolution. That was known as "the modern synthesis." Since that time virtually every paper published on genetics, embryology, paleontology, or any other branch of biology has further strengthened the theory.
