jan 1, 1844 - Anonymous pamphlet on evolution strikes fury (1844)

Description:

Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation becomes a notorious bestseller in England. Author Robert Chambers, fearful of attack, publishes his evolutionary ideas anonymously, and rightly so: Scientists and clergy alike rally against it. One of Darwin's former Cambridge teachers leads the charge with an 85-page critical review. While secretlye supporting its premise, even Darwin agrees that the work is marred by faulty reasoning.
