Charles Darwin was an English naturalist. He is known for forming the theory of evolution, a scientific explanation for the origin of life on Earth. Darwin was born in 1809 in Shrewsbury, England. In 1831, he got a job on a ship called the HMS Beagle, which was taking a five-year trip around the world. Darwin got to visit many countries and study different plants and animals. He started to form his theory while studying birds on the Galápagos Islands. In 1859, he published a book called On the Origin of Species, which stated that all life on Earth may have evolved from one organism. This theory was unpopular at the time, because society was very religious. However, over time, more people started to accept Darwin’s ideas. Darwin died in 1882, at age 73.

I think so many religious people rejected the theory of evolution because it conflicts with their views of creation. No, it is not possible to believe in both religion and evolution because if you believe in evolution, means you don’t believe in God. In religion, mankind is a descendant from Adam and Eve, whereas in evolution theory, mankind evolved from apes. Moreover, evolution theory is just a theory which cannot be proven by facts.
In my opinion,so many religious people rejected the theory of evolution because religious people only believe in God.They didn’t believe to theory because they think everything in the world was created by God.It is possible to believe in both religion and evolution.
