BBC News reported today that Cambridge University in England has launched a new website containing a comprehensive library on the life and work of naturalist Charles Darwin. Featuring thousands of pages of text, pictures, and audio, Darwin Online provides readers and researchers access to Darwin’s books, such as Origin of Species and The Descent of Man, as well as field notes and personal correspondence. A massive compilation by any standards—50,000 pages of text and 40,000 images, the project aims to add additional materials in the next three years to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth.
For an interesting take on the life of Charles Darwin, read Dr. Jerry Bergman’s Impact article, “Was Charles Darwin Psychotic? A Study of His Mental Health” or Dr. John Moore’s analysis of Darwin’s influence in his article, “The Impact of Evolution on Social Sciences.” Other articles about Darwin can be found by accessing ICR’s search engine and typing in “Darwin.”
Concurrently, ICR has released today a new media resource titled The Faithful Messenger, a multi-disc DVD set presenting the life and work of ICR founder Dr. Henry M. Morris. Contrasted with Darwin’s influence on evolutionary thought and research, Dr. Morris’ impact on the modern creation science movement is vividly portrayed in this dramatized documentary.
