When reflecting on his work, Darwin, said, "I was a young man with unformed ideas.  I threw out queries, suggestions, wondering all the time over everything; and to my astonishment the ideas took like wildfire.  People made a religion of them."

"Being bedridden many months before his death, Darwin was often found reading.  When one visitor asked what it was he was studying, he replied:   Hebrews, still Hebrews.  The Royal Book," I call it.

After speaking on "the holiness of God" and "the grandeur of this Book," Darwin declared:  Christ Jesus and his salvation.  Is not that the best theme?"
