Summary/Abstract: Charles Darwin: The founder of the theory of natural selection declared that he was a believer till 1859, when his well-known book The Origin of Species was published. After his death, in 1882, he was honoured by a burial in the Westminster Abbey. However, as his notes prove, he had never thought of betraying science for the sake of religious reasons. He had already written in 1838 that: “The great break in the organic chain between man and his nearest allies, which cannot be bridged over by any extinct or living species, has often been advanced as a grave objection to the belief that man is descended from some lower form; but this objection will not appear of much weight to those who, from general reasons, believe in the general principle of evolution”. This “great break” between men and animals, between Civilization and Natural Selection: this is what we shall make an effort to bridge over in this book.
