The Origin of Species is a book of scientific literature written by Charles Darwin and published in 1859.
It is one of the forerunners of scientific literature and the foundation of the theory of evolutionary biology. It can be considered the most influential and historically important work in the field of natural sciences.
The main theme of the book is the concept of natural selection: species evolve over generations, giving rise to today's diversity through a branching pattern of evolution. Although it was not the first evolutionary theory in this regard, it was the first that convinced the entire community about the development of life and eliminated the idea of a creator of animal and plant species. This led him to receive numerous criticisms and protests from the Church by colliding head-on with the idea of God as the creator of the world.
In summary, Darwin's theory explains that the individuals of a species that best adapt to the environment in which they live are those that have a greater advantage and therefore survive, transmitting their genetics to their offspring, and with the passage of many years. generations, these small adaptations are added to create a new species.

Nothing is easier than to admit in words the truth of the universal struggle for life, or more difficult--at least I have found it so--than constantly to bear this conclusion in mind.
One general law, leading to the advancement of all organic beings, namely, multiply, vary, let the strongest live and the weakest die.
