Darwin's Sacred Cause 
In this fascinating talk after the Dorset Humanists Darwin Day Lunch best-selling author Professor James Moore, a world authority on Charles Darwin, will give a completely new explanation of how Darwin arrived at his famous view of evolution.  There has always been a mystery surrounding Darwin: how did this quiet, respectable gentleman, a pillar of his parish, come to embrace one of the most radical ideas in the history of human thought? With co-author Adrian Desmond, James Moore has written a prize-winning biography of Darwin in addition to "Darwin's Sacred Cause". He is Professor of the History of Science at the Open University and is currently researching the life of Alfred Russel Wallace who lived in Broadstone.
