The Idea that Changed the World
Darwin & Evolution by Natural Selection
In this episode we celebrate the 160th anniversary of a publication that changed scientific thinking completely.
On November 24, 1859, Charles Darwin published his work: On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection; an account of the greatest story ever told — that of evolution by natural selection.
We discuss Darwin’s life and talk about the theory of evolution. Please check out Darwin’s drawing of the tree of life and the doodles his children made on his draft manuscript below.
