Nonbeliever Charles Darwin

Am 23.11. 1880 hatte sich ein junger Anwalt brieflich an Charles Darwin gewandt: "...If I am to have pleasure in reading your books I must feel that at the end I shall not have lost my faith in the New Testament. My reason in writing to you therefore is to ask you to give me a Yes or No to the question Do you believe in the New Testament."

Die Antwort lautete kurz und deutlich: "I am sorry to have to inform you that I do not believe in the Bible as a divine revelation & therefore not in Jesus Christ as the son of God. Yours faithfully, Ch. Darwin"
