What did Darwin discover that causes atheists to seemingly adhere so much to him?

Answer

Darwin observed evolution through natural selection. His theories and works were strongly rejected by people who believed in god. Darwin's ideas went against the Bible's accounts of how life happened here on Earth. 

The story of evolution as it happened here on Earth is a remarkable, beautiful story. So much more than made - up stories in so-called holy books can ever offer. 

Today, lots of religious people continue to reject the idea of evolution. But evolution is based on science. There is a lot evidence for it: the rocks, the continents, fossils and including your blood, your anatomy and your DNA. 

So when you have religious people arguing their theistic beliefs, thumping their book of Genesis, you naturally have atheists like myself who counters their arguments and so Darwin's name would inevitably be brought up.

Do you have a different answer that might help the questioner? How would you answer this question?
