That there is a conflict between religion and evolution there can be no doubt, a conflict which arose during the Victorian era in England where Charles Darwin lived and where he published his famous book, "The Origin of Species". The publication of Darwin's book evoked intense interest, and public opinion quickly became polarized, bringing strong support from scientists and people of a more liberal persuasion, and bringing strong not to say vehement opposition from religious believers and people of a more conservative bent. It was not a controversy over a slight matter, a "tempest in a Victorian teacup" as it has been called, for the issue was nothing less than the nature of man and his place in the universe among all other living beings, topics which had effects on numerous other issues such as the existence of God, the nature of social justice and the truth of the Bible.
