I don't think anyone before Darwin had thought of simple randomness as being enough to
drive evolution. Wallace also thought of it, but it is Darwin we celebrate because he not
only had the idea, he also collected enormous amounts of supporting data and worked out
most of the implications of the theory.
Both evolutionary theory and the natural selection have a history that
Darwin. But we know of them through Darwin. Darwin wasn't great for having
ideas, because they didn't originate with him. He was great because his
these ideas impossible to ignore.
I think it's fair to say that he put these ideas together in a way that made more sense
than they had previously, and added quite a few ideas of his own?
