Thomas Chalmers

Thomas Chalmers. From Project Gutenberg.Thomas Chalmers (1780-1847) was a leader in the Church of Scotland and professor of theology in the University of Edinburgh. He authored the first two Bridgewater Treatises, published in two volumes under the title The Adaptation of External Nature to the Moral and Intellectual Constitution of Man. He wrote extensive­ly on both the natural and social sciences, as well as theol­ogy, and was chiefly responsible for the popularization of the “gap theory” as a supposed defense of the Genesis record against the uniformitarian geologists.
