Darwin’s Dangerous Idea/ Isabel Gutierrez

Why was Darwin's piblication of On the Origin Species a courageous act?
Darwin was studyin the theory of evolution during a time in England where the people had a hard time believing his ideas because they all believed in God. They believed that God created everything and that if anything went wrong it was a sign from God. One thing that was dangerous about this was that Darwin was going against the church. Darwin knew that he would be tried and maybe be put to death.

  1. Great job Isabel! You stated truth and facts, and it was a daring act because religiously people never acted against God so yes indeed it was daring.
