Charles Darwin was a very conventionally religious man. He agonized over the existence of Evolution. It seemed to conflict with his understanding of and belief in the Bible. However, he did not reject the evidence of his scientific research. Nor did he lose faith. Instead he used his scientific learning to modify his understanding of the Bible. To the end of his life, he remained a believer in both science and God, rejecting neither. he would have been surprised and shocked by people today who reject the evidence, whether or evolution or global warming.
