The Encounter between Thomas and the Bishop Wilberforce( p. 1)

The encounter between Thomas Huxley and the Bishop Wilberforce was probably a kind of social image reconstructed by the Darwinians in Victorian age. one reconsiders it in the context of scientific professionalization ,he will find that it would be mainly the conflict between professional scientists and naturalist gentlemen other than the conflict between science and religion because Wilberforce’s criticism was primarily in a scientific way. In addition ,there is no any obvious evidence to show that Huxley had won the debate scientifically.
