Charles Darwin is best know for his book, On the Origin of Species, which lays out his theory of evolution. Groundbreaking and controversial at the time (who am I kidding, there are still holdouts on evolution), this theory has made Darwin one of the most influential people in human history. Darwin was likely a deist and described himself as agnostic. He once described religions as a tribal survival strategy. The death of his daughter seemed to be the final break for him and while he continued to donate time and money to a church, he stopped attending.
