How does Well's present religion in the 'War of the Worlds' novel and what is the significance of this?
Darwinism is used to portray the scientific point of view in the novel. Darwin was a scientist in the 19th Century and put forward the theory of Natural Selection of The Species in his 1859 book 'Origin of the Species'. His theory was based upon the 'Survival of the Fittest' which suggested of all the plants and animals, those with the best 'design' would out-compete or survive those of weaker designs. Darwin was making a point that those animals and plants that are stronger would be able to survive changing environmental conditions. He also suggested the stronger species, as predators could prey upon weaker species.
