What would I do in my autobiography that is different from what Darwin did. His full name is really  Charles Robert Darwin. You may already know who he is because he is so famous. He was an “English naturalist, geologist and biologist best known for his contributions to the science of evolution.” He wrote many books throughout his life. Two of them were his autobiography and a book called  “The Origin of Species.” It was placed in the theory of evolution. Darwin’s point of view was evolution And some people believe in it, but other people know that it’s a lie. We cannot change Darwin now. “Darwin has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history, and he was honored by burial in Westminster Abbey.” Westminster Abbey is a Famous church for many reasons. One of them was that it was the chosen location for seventeen royal weddings. That means that he must have been really famous. Also he won a lot of awards. Some of those awards were the FRS, Royal Medal, Wollaston Medal, Copley Medal, Doctor of Laws and Cambridge. Can you imaging having those awards and more? His wife was Emma Wedgwood and they had ten children. Imagine right now that you had ten children. Your house would probably be a mess. I know a family that has eight children, but yet that is not ten. He was diagnosed in 1882 with what was called “angina pectoris”. That then meant coronary thrombosis and disease of the heart. Around the time of his death the physicians diagnosed “anginal attacks”, and “heart-failure”. It could have very well been that Darwin may have suffered from chronic Chagas disease. His autobiography is well known and it sold out very quickly because Darwin is a very well known person. 

Now bake to the question, what would I do in my autobiography that is different from what Darwin did? Well first of all I would make my autobiography longer than Darwin’s. He also talks about his job a lot and not nearly as much about his family. I would write more about more about my family. You may have more reasons, but I do not.
