    Unhappy Darwin's voyage on the Beagle

    Hi
    Please someone help
    thank you in advance

    please help for meaning of "since Darwin's voyage on the Beagle"
    and is it idiom?

    in "In fact, it is rather a mild expression of skepticism, always
    a reasonable scientific attitude, and a gratuitous call for careful
    examination of the evidence for Darwin's theory—unnecessary because this has been the rule in evolution science since Darwin's voyage on the Beagle."

    Re: Darwin's voyage on the Beagle

    hi,
    Please note I'm not a teacher nor a native speaker;
    In your example it just means from the beginning. I wouldn't say it's an idiom.
    The Beagle is a name of a ship. While on this voyage, expedition Charles Darwin formulated his theory of evolution.
    cheers
