Darwin's Victorian rhetoric

A very illuminating article sent along by classfellow D.S.:

The Persuasive Mr. Darwin
Randy Moore, BioScience Vol. 47, No. 2 (Feb., 1997)
"It's interesting because it talks about Darwin's use of rhetoric to persuade his Victorian audience. It sums up each section and basically states that Darwin didn't believe in God but used the language of Christianity to make his argument more palatable to Victorians."
