Evolution and censorship

Charles Darwin used the word only once, in the closing paragraph of "The Origin of Species" (1859), and instead preferred "descent with modification". A sense of "progress" is not found in Darwin's idea.

Latviešu valodā vārda evolūcija sentēvs ir vārds velt, velties. Citiem vārdiem sakot, dzīvība veļas uz priekšu (in Latvian language the word "velt" means "to roll". The Life is rolling or revolving).
