jan 1, 1794 - Erasmus Darwin's Zoonomia heralds evolution (1794)

Description:

Charles Darwin's grandfather, a flamboyant physician, botanist, and poet, toys with a daring idea. In Zoonomia, written almost entirely in rhymed couplets, he asks, "Would it be too bold to imagine...that all warm-blooded animals have ariisen from one-living fillament?" While not widely accepted, evolution (then called "transmutation") is widely discussed by British intellectuals in the late 18th century.
