Happy Birthday, Charles Darwin

New, comments

February 12th is Darwin Day, and the old man would've turned 200 today. The fact of evolution by natural selection is the single most profoundly important -- yet astonishingly and elegantly simple -- scientific discovery ever made, and today (and every day) we celebrate that discovery and the man who made it some 170 years ago. Happy Birthday, Charles.
