Happy Darwin Day!

Today is Charles Darwin’s 199th birthday. So raise a glass to the man who came up with the concept of evolution through inherited characteristics and differential success aka natural Selection. While Darwin’s theory has been modified over the years to the New Darwinian Syntheses he is still the man who started it all. Darwin is a giant of science ranking with Galileo, Newton and Einstein as a father of a scientific revolution.

As for those who still can not except evolution or Darwin’s theory after 149 years, enjoy your 12th century religious myths the rest of us will get on with the 21st century.
