Darwin was like Newton.
He only knew evolution like most of the scientific crouds
at the time. He was at the top of knowledge.
Definitely an advantage.
The Origin of Species was already
a matter of discussion among the scientific community
for some time as well as the classification of animals
to groups that were for some reason called families.
It is true, but lets not be too vocal about it - said the comunity.
Darwin was mostly hiding his theories except from the
scientific community, at least until he collected his thoughts
enough to have the balls to publish,
in a world where there is not a single atheist on the planet.
During newton time, everybody knew the world is not flat,
and is not the center of anything,
and you can not walk all the way to the edge of this
seemingly flat surface and fall down,
because there is no up and down anymore,
and the world revolves around the sun and not vice versa,
and this means that regardless of where we stand on it,
we will continue to fall into its center,
and not to this day we know why,
but we call it Gravity.
Darwin once said he has no clue where life came from.
He also said that if two forms of life appear independently
on the planet,
it would mean Darwin was wrong on the whole thing.
Replace 'Planet' with 'Universe' and apply his theory.
If there is alien life, great.
In any case, all life in the universe originated in one single planet.
Anything else is migration and evolution.
It would be statistically improbable that there is life out there
and at the same time that life on earth is not alien.
It would mean that life in the Universe originated on planet earth,
and all life in the universe revolves around it in
the Revolution of the Heavens.
