So I was reading an article on Charles Darwin today on Boston.com, which included the line:
And at first I thought, well, duh. It seemed to be similar to saying Jesus was raised non-Christian.
But then I started wondering – prior to Darwin, was everyone basically a creationist of some sort or another? Or was there some other theory? Or did the idea of evolution kind of exist already, maybe in a nascent form, and Darwin just came along and codified and expanded on it?
I don’t want to turn this into an evolution vs. creationism debate – just wondering about schools of thought on the origin of life pre-Darwin.
