Charles Darwin

Darwin came to believe in his theories for many reasons. It could partly be because that was how he was raised or maybe it was during the voyage around the world on the H.M.S. Beagle. It could even be from his trip to the Galapagos where he saw the different birds on different islands but the same species. Charles began in Shrewsbury, England on February 12, 1809. He was the grandson of the noted physician and naturalist Erasmus Darwin. Darwin then went to school and ended up at studying Medicine at the university of Edinburgh and theology at Cambridge University in 1831. He then was offered to go to go survey the southern coasts as a naturalist. During his voyage he came to believe strongly in many ideas from the plants, and animals he observed. One of the things he observed was in the Galapagos on three different islands one bird beak was short, strong, and stubby which helped it get its main food source from pinecones. On another island the birds' beak was medium but skinny good for catching all the bugs on that island. The last island the birds' beak was very long and skinny which was good because they had to eat the bugs out of trees which required a long skinny beak. The thing that he had also observed was that although each bird was different it was the same species.

Natural selection is the process in which individual organisms with favorable traits are more likely to survive and reproduce than those with unfavorable traits.
