Thomas Huxley
Darwinism

[Cheerleader for Darwinism Thomas Huxley established himself as "Darwin's bulldog" the fiercest defender of evolutionary theory on the Victorian stage. Both sides came away feeling victorious, but Huxley went on to depict the debate as pivotal in a struggle between religion and science and used Darwinism to campaign against the authority of the clergy in education, as well as daringly advocating the "Ape Origin of Man".
