While Darwin was the first to poke holes in his own hypothesis, it was still taken up by many who saw how his dehumanizing speculations could be applied to 'racial purity' and social theory, to name but a few of its historical applications, for their own humanistic purposes. Moreover, honest evolutionists have gone on record very clearly about a non-theistic faith being the necessary foundation for their worldviews and lifestyles, and evolution provides the intellectual basis for just such a religion in secular humanism. But, since this book is still at the base of much of western civilization, understanding the concept can be helpful in ascertaining many of the evolution-based problems of society.
Now Christians know better, but a hundred years ago the faith of many was shaken by what seemed to be unequivocal refutation of the Bible's truth. Many people still labor under the assumption that whatever is taught in schools and colleges supersedes scriptural precedent. Still more don't know, understand, care, or want to upset the perceived societal status quo, and so choose not to speak out against evolution when basic knowledge of its claims could inform and solidify their faith. When an idea as influential as this is not checked it can undermine the morality, constitution, and collective faith of the nation.

Perhaps the most readable and accessible of the great works of scientific inquiry, The Origin of Species sold out its first printing on the very day it was published in 1859. Theologians quickly labeled Charles Darwin the most dangerous man in England and, as the Saturday Review noted, the uproar over the book quickly "passed beyond the bounds of the study and lecture-room into the drawing-room and the public street." Based largely on Darwins experience as a naturalist while on a five-year voyage aboard H. M. S. Beagle, The Origin of Species set forth a theory of evolution and natural selection that challenged contemporary beliefs about divine providence and the immutability of species. This Modern Library edition includes a Foreword by the Pulitzer Prizewinning science historian Edward J. Larson, an introductory historical sketch, and a glossary Darwin later added to the original text.
Edward J. Larson is Russell Professor of History and Talmadge Professor of Law at the University of Georgia. He is the recipient of multiple awards for teaching and writing, including the 1998 Pulitzer Prize in History for his book Summer for the Gods: The Scopes Trial and Americas Continuing Debate Over Science and Religion.
