Darwin Day 2008

February 12, 2008

Today is Darwin Day! It’s fascinating to ponder the course of ideas, isn’t it?  Would Darwin have foreseen that his insights – which have been proven mostly correct and which have benefited humanity in countless ways – would still be struggling for popular acceptance 199 years after his birth? 

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”
- Charles Darwin

Wishing you an adaptable 2008!
