Charles Darwin’s Day

On this day 200 years ago a great man was born. In celebration I ask everyone to think: Is it so bad to be the fifth ape? Gorillas, chimpanzee, orangutans, gibbons, humans.

It is a much more wondrous trip we have made than that described by myth where you take a piece of clay and add water and abracadabra, you have a human being. The struggle to this magnificent point through millions of years of minute changes is indeed something to behold. 

We are indeed  made from the materials produced by stars. We are indeed like the Universe come alive in an attempt to understand itself. Nothing can be as wondrous as that.
