Charles Darwin was a English Scientist in the early 1800's, who is most famous for his theories of natural selection and evolution.

Charles Darwin did many significant things that changed the world. He sailed his boat to the Galapagos Islands, where he discovered a variety of different finches. Through further investigation, he proposed the idea of evolution through natural selection. This shocked the world and went against almost everyones beliefs as it was a time where the majority of people where religious. In 1859 he published a book with the scientsit Charles Lyell, which explained their research on the diversification in nature, and the evolution of man from apes. This changed the world by inspiring other scientists to work harder and discover more facts and data on evolution. Darwins studies and book changed the way humans think about science and the creation of humans and other organisms.
