-Nicolaus Copernicus
-Socrates
-Charles Darwin




Answer: Charles Darwin is best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. Darwin’s theory of evolution declared that species survived through a process called “natural selection,” where those that successfully adapted, or evolved, to meet the changing requirements of their natural habitat thrived, while those that failed to evolve and reproduce died off. In 1859, he published a detailed explanation of his theory in his best-known work, On the Origin of Species. Darwin’s theory of evolution and the process of natural selection later became known simply as “Darwinism.”

Quotes
It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.




A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
In the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.
