C. S. Lewis and Darwin Compared


Statue by Ross Wilson in Belfast, Ireland

This statue was modeled after C. S. Lewis as he looked in 1919 and portrays Digory Kirke looking into the wardrobe from the Chronicles of Narnia.

“The horrid doubt always arises whether the convictions of man’s mind, which has developed from the mind of the lower animals, are of any value or at all trustworthy. Would anyone trust the conviction of a monkey’s mind, if there are any convictions in such a mind?” ~ Charles Darwin

“It is only when you are asked to believe in Reason coming from non-reason

that you must cry Halt, for if you don’t,

all thought is discredited”

~ C. S. Lewis

NOTES:

  • Darwin’s quote from a letter to W. Graham (July 3, 1881) quoted in The Autobiography of Charles Darwin and Selected Letters
  • C. S. Lewis quoted from his book, Miracles.
