Happy Birthday Darwin!

Darwin’s 200th birthday occurs Thursday February 12th. Also the 150th anniversary of his seminal work," On the Origin of Species", occurs November 24th of this year. This book generated much controversy when it was published as it contradicted the creation myths that prevailed at the time. Despite the overwhelming voluminous evidence supported by science, political and religious challenges continue to this day. Preceding it’s publication Darwin himself was hesitant for he knew what its implications would bring.

I for one am glad he decided to go ahead with it’s publication. One of the most important scientific advancements of mankind.
