This was a neat article about a fossil find in Britain that was kept within a family for many years.
I especially found this quote interesting:
“You have to remember that fossils weren’t really explained until Darwin came along.
Up until then, if you believed in fossils you were denying the Bible saying God created Day One, and so on.”
I wish he’d elaborated a bit more on the specifics, but it sounds like, (at this time/place and to these people) rather than being seen as the enemy of God, Darwin’s work helped to clear things up for the intersection of science and religion.
