Caption: Thomas Huxley. Caricature of Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-95), British biologist, riding on a fish. Huxley was the main advocate for the theory of evolution in scientific debates because Charles Darwin, its main proposer, was a shy man who shunned publicity. Huxley gained a reputation as a forceful and witty writer and debater and became known as "Darwin's bull-dog". Huxley first presented Darwin's theory in 1860 at a meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science at Oxford. Huxley turned the evolution debate into one of science rather than emotion. Image taken from an 1881 edition of the British magazine Punch.
