Well, here it is; the 200th birthday of good ol' Charles Darwin, easily one of the Great Heroes of Science. Naturalist, Geologist, Biologist, Charles Darwin was, in the words of his contemporaries "totally rad...to the max" (quote attributed to Huxley). It's been a tough 200 years for the man, though. Old Darwin fundamentally changed the way we view historical science, revolutionized the field of biology, and provided key insights in the history of earth and life processes, and yet there are still a bunch of moron's out there that belittle the staggering genius of the man and his work.
Still, between the "staggering inanity" of the Dover Creationists, and the shocking moral and scientific bankruptcy of Stein's "Expelled", I think things are looking up. We just gotta keep up the good fight.
Anyway, in celebration of the man, raise a glass of beer (which depends on the action of Yeast, one of the most important model organisms in evolutionary biology) to Darwin, maybe play some billiards with your butler, and punch a Creationist.
