I just watched Creation, and it strikes me as historically questionable. I find it hard to believe, for example, that the Great Naturalist could see and speak with his dead daughter. Also the character of Charles Darwin seemed wrong. I had a hard time believing that the man portrayed in the movie could string 10 coherent sentences together, much less write a foundational work of scientific literature like The Origin of Species.

Two questions:

(1) Can anyone recommend a good non-fanciful biography of the man?

(2) Has anyone read his autobiography?

Thanks!
