Was it an accident that Darwin's conclusion meant just what every reader wanted it to mean? I think not. Darwin used the same ambiguity in his private letters. Darwinism, therefore, began as a theory that evolution could be explained by natural selection. It ended as a theory that evolution could be explained just as you would like it to be explained. (Darlington, Cyril D. [late Professor of Botany, Oxford University], The Origin of Darwinism, Scientific American, Vol. 201, May 1959, p.60)
