This book features an exploration of the interaction between Darwinian ideas and Catholic doctrine. This coherent collection of original papers marks the 150 year anniversary since the publication of Charles Darwin's "Origin of Species" (1859). Although the area of evolution-related publications is vast, the area of interaction between Darwinian ideas and specifically Catholic doctrine has received limited attention. This interaction is quite distinct from the one between Darwinism and the Christian tradition in general. Interest in Darwin from the Catholic viewpoint has recently been rekindled. The major causes of this include: John Paul II's "Message to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences on Evolution" in 1996; (2) the document "Communion and Stewardship: Human Persons Created in the Image of God" issued in 2002; by the International Theological Commission under the supervision of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the present Pope Benedict XVI; Cardinal Christoph Schonborn apparent endorsement of Intelligent Design in his "New York Times" article "Finding Design in Nature" of July 7, 2005; and, Pope Benedict XVI's contributions in the recent collection of papers "Schopfung und Evolution" ("Creation and Evolution"), published in Germany in April, 2007. Responding to this heightened interest, the book offers a valuable collection of work from outstanding Catholic scholars in various fields.
Progress in genetics today would not be possible without Darwin's revolution, but the mysterious man who laid the rational basis for undermining belief in God's creation was remarkably timid. He spent most of his life in seclusion; a semi-invalid, riddled with doubts, fearing the controversy his theories might unleash. In this lucid book - a classic originally published in 1982 - Jonathan Miller unravels Darwin's life and his contribution to biology, and traces the path from his scientific predecessors to the later modifications that his own evolutionary theories required. Introducing Darwin brings alive the difficult progress from pre-Darwinian thinking to modern genetics, and the devastatingly important impact of one man on our fundamental understanding of biology, life and ourselves.
Darwin, a Galapagos tortoise, was a tender-hearted romantic who saw the world as a wonderful place filled with love and laughter. The moment he laid eyes on Anima, he was infatuated with her beauty and grace. Even though he was very young, his heart told him that she was his one and only true love.
To the Galapagos islands inhabitants, Darwin a friendly giant tortoise represents the soul of their environment, a living monument to the power of life. To sustain his kind (Pinta Island Tortoises) his friends, a marine iguana named Admiral Ignatius, Esmeralda, a pink iguana, Louie a comical crab, a blue penguin, a lava lizard, and Flash, the dolphin join forces to find his soul mate and perhaps more of his kind.
However, dark forces, who are led by an entity named Malos, would wreck their fragile environment, and prevent Darwin from being with his true love.
