Darwin’s great-grandson Richard Keynes wrote in 2002 about the tragic death of Darwin’s favourite daughter, Annie, which profoundly influenced Charles Darwin and motivated him to publicly author On the Origin of Species. Keynes stated, ‘After Annie’s death [in 1851], Charles [Darwin] set the Christian faith firmly behind him … Freed from the last vestige of belief that the world was perfect because God created it that way, Darwin continued without spiritual restraint to work out his theory on the origin of species.’
Most present-day evolutionists fail to remember that Darwin never lived long enough to observe anything evolve, knew nothing about genetics or mutations, and was the first to admit in his chapter on Geology in On the Origin of Species that the fossils didn’t help his case at all. Darwin never proved evolution, he simply presupposed it and argued from there, emotionally motivated by an anger which caused him to reject God and substitute death and suffering as the norm and the way by which all life evolved.
