150 Years After "˜Origin of the Species', Science and Religion Remain in Conflict Over Evolution

When Charles Darwin published his landmark book On the Origin of Species in 1859, his theories on evolution were quickly accepted by the vast majority of scientists. The general public, however, was not as eager to accept Darwin's ideas, due largely to the fact that they challenged established religious beliefs. Today, 150 years after the publication of Darwin's book, science and religion remain as conflicted as ever when it comes to the subject of evolution.
