Interview with Sir James Barlow, Great Great Grandson of Charles Darwin, Pt. 1


I stumbled upon this recent and interesting interview with Sir Charles Barlow, one of the great great grandsons of Charles Darwin.  Darwin is the man who developed the theory of natural selection, the basic mechanism of evolution and who wrote the book, The Origin of the Species.  Through the interview I learned some interesting things about Charles Darwin and what he really believed.

Sir James Barlow came to a personal relationship with Jesus in 1979 at the Manchester University in the UK-- Sir James has held positions within the business community as President of the Abbotsford ( a city about 1 and a half hours east of Vancouver) Chamber of Commerce and is now a Director of the BC Chamber of Commerce. In his personal life, Sir James serves as a deacon in his local Church, is involved in various wildlife organizations, and is also an ambassador for the Galapagos Conservation Trust.

Thanks to my readers who have said that the links I provided, take them out of  my blog.  I have now embedded Part 1 of the interview here rather than a link.  However, clicking on the link for Part 2 of the interview  will take you to youtube.  To return to my blog you simply click the back button (arrow at the top left of your computer menu) and it will bring you back to my page).




The second part of the interview is here.

Enjoy!

Now that was an interesting video. ..and to think that I have always thought that Darwin was the first and alone at the time with his thoughts on evalution. Thanks for sharing.

Very interesting, Penny. I watched both videos, which somehow disconnected me from your blog, but I wanted to say thanks for posting these.

Very fascinating - so much I didn't know about his great, great grandfather.

I'm glad you enjoyed the video. I learned a lot about Darwin through the interview and it was all made more personal through his relative's sharing of the message. I actually have followed you publicly but for some reason my profile pic is not appearing on your follower widget. I've tried and tried to correct that. I think it has something to do with the Google Friend Connect program. I've never come across this issue before.
