    On The Origin of Species
    Darwin publishes On The Origin of Species. He was not fond of the idea of shaking up the fundamental ideologies of the church and peers. But he did not invent evolutionary theory either. What Origin of Species did was to support the idea of evolution by proposing a means of improving species lines through natural selection, where nature favors varieties of plants and animals that adapted or change to their environment.
