To be precise, Darwin's son added this quotation from Darwin as a note in parentheses to a letter Darwin wrote to Hooker. See Life and Letters of Charles Darwin, Vol. II. He doesn't say where Darwin wrote this.

Re: Getting downright logical...
My argument that 'theo' is the root of both is correct. You found the Latin but not the Greek Etymology.
He provided both, and following the links, I find:
"From Greek "contemplation, speculation", from ‘ "spectator," literally "one looking at a show", from *+‘ > ()‘."
Nothing to do with God, you note. In fact, the English word with which it plainly has a relationship is theater.
