Review of The Dark Side of Charles Darwin: A Critical Analysis of an Icon of Science by Jerry Bergman, PhD

Both enlightening and depressing “The Dark Side of Charles Darwin: A Critical Analysis of an Icon of Science” by Jerry Bergman is a must read for anyone interested in the origins debate that has raged since the publication of “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life” in 1859.

Charles Darwin has long been revered as a brilliant scientist but was he? Or was he rather a  sexist, racist, emotionally unstable husband, immature father, sadistic killer of animals, supporter of the practice of eugenics, physically and psychologically ill man who plagiarized his materials? The evidence in this book would seem to point to the latter.

The world hasn’t had a chance to know the real Charles Darwin…until now.  Dr. Jerry Bergman has opened up the private life of the darling of the evolutionary set and what he presents before us isn’t a pretty picture; it is, however, a scholarly, needful and very welcomed one. Dr. Bergman has done the world a long-needed favor and delved where many might fear to go; in doing so he has written a very thorough and well-researched book on a very troubled and deceitful man.

This book would be perfect for homeschoolers, for church libraries, for pastors or for the average Joe and Jane who are seeking to know the truth.

I received a copy of this book for free from New Leaf Press for purposes of review. I was not required to give a positive review, only a fair and truthful one. My opinions are my own.

  1. Luke, you are quite mistaken. Dr. Bergman’s arguments are clearly thought out and outlined in his writings. The time and research that it took to complete this book shows through in each chapter. In my honest opinion, Bergman is a wealth of knowledge and his understanding is very in depth and you are obviously not capable of standing up against such a brilliant mind. Sincerely, a very satisfied student of Bergman’s.
