Charles Darwin - The Origin of Species

The Origin of Species is the book that started it all. Although written almost 150 years ago, little of Darwin's theory has been changed and much of it has proven true using evidences not available to Darwin. Few understand the theory and even fewer have bothered to read the book. The misunderstandings would fade away if more people began to read Darwin himself--rather than rely on second- and third-hand accounts (frequently written or taught by those who haven't comprehended the theory or researched the facts).
