Charles Darwin

Presented for your enjoyment: Charles Darwin, history's most influential freethinker, consistently ranked as one of the Top Ten Minds of the Millennium. All agree he lived a fascinating, exciting life of discovery. Now esteemed AOF member Arthur Murchison, retired marine biologist, will invite Charles Darwin's living ghost to tell us how he (Darwin) became such a big noise in the world of science.

An enthusiastic science history buff, our time-tripping tour guide has found the life of Charles Darwin to be especially intriguing. Having spent much enjoyable and informative time with 19th-century British scientists (formerly called "natural philosophers"), Art will hop into his Wayback Machine and revisit their world with the help of digital images, music, and narration flavored with sound effects.

Please join him, and us, in a new phase of the adventure.
