The Genius of Charles Darwin Comments

Absolutely fascinating! Richard Dawson is very charming as he helps the audience think through what is going on with religion. Dawson brilliantly shows the humanity of Charles Darwin and the horrors Darwin faced during his life because he was a free thinker.
What a tremendous person Charles Darwin is!

man. “
