Historic ... a must read

I'm not sure I could "read" this book because it goes on forever. But it was good listen. You have to make allowances because of when it was written and tough sell it must have been over the creationists. Even though you already know all the concepts, it still makes one look at nature with a new perspective and marvel at the vast diversity of life.

Not very convincing, creationism much more likely.

Everything in this book simply details the dispersion of animals after Noah's flood. Animals dispersed and adapted to their new surroundings creating different species in different areas. Its also a racist book. Darwin refers to native people as "savages". I hope someone tears down his statue.
