"It proclaimed the greatest discovery in the history of humanity: Organic Evolution."

This is going over the top. First, Darwin did not discover it. Many people suspected evolution, but did not have the evidence. Darwin provided the evidence . He was the first to "prove it".

Second, there are other great theories and discoveries in cosmology and physics , so I do not like these marketing gimmicks about the "greatest theory". Let us try to be more respectful of what other people have done.
