Difficult issues series
When Darwin published his On the Origin of Species in 1859 it provoked a range of reactions from christians and from scientists too. Many christians were quite comfortable with the idea of evolution (though many others were not), and it wasn’t until about 60 years later that the more ‘hardline’ christian opposition to evolution began.
That opposition remains, mostly in the US, where it is reported that evolution is rejected by more than 40% of the population.
