In 1859, Charles Darwin published a vastly important work, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection. For centuries, man had been seen as a created species, distinct from any other animal. Then, Darwin persuasively argued that mankind and other species are descended from common ancestors. His theory of "natural selection", also known as "survival of the fittest", explains how life evolved through natural processes. By the 1950s, most scientists accepted the theory. However, it upset many who believed that life was created by a supernatural God, a debate which is perpetuated today. The Science and Discovery series recreates history's 4,000-year journey to better understand the world through scientific means. It is a story of vested interests and independent thinkers, experiments and theories, change and progress.

Excellent overview of evolution
Darwin: theory or fact?
No, because the evidence presented is faulty.
Not at all, I'm intrigued to find the answers to the topic.
Yes, but this is not as important as the actual theories presented as fact.
Yes, a book to explain all the parts that were left out; an in-depth study of evolution and Darwin's motives for coming up with it.
Only that everything should not be accepted blindly as truth. This is not a bedtime story to help you fall asleep, put your thinking cap on.
