With each new development in science comes conflict, mostly from those who dont believe that science follows the teachings of their religion or allies with their beliefs in an almighty power or God.

He was also on the receiving end of much religious persecution, even to the point of living out his last years under house arrest, forbidden from writing and publishing. Then in the 1800s Charles Darwin researched and published revolutionary biology books on the theory of evolution, his most widely known book being The Origin of Species.
