Charles Darwin, the father of the theory of evolution, was married to his first cousin

Charles Darwin, the father of the theory of evolution, was married to his first cousin

Charles Darwin is the father of evolution science and a biologist whose studies set a milestone in explaining the origins of all living forms on Earth. His theory of natural selection turned the 19th century science world upside-down and has been a subject of lively debate and numerous studies ever since. Although Darwin’s academic carrier continues to interest scholars around the world, the biologist’s personal life is actually rather puzzling. Darwin, the father of evolution–and genetics for that matter–decided to marry his first cousin, with whom he had 10 children, some of whom seem to have exhibited direct symptoms of...
