Happy 200th Charles Darwin!

Last night my friend Fin and I were discussing the genius that was Charles Darwin, and how utterly amazing it is that he was able to visualize such an advanced theory as evolution and natural selection without the aid of modern technology. What's even better about this is that modern technology has been used to further solidify and validate the theory of evolution in ways that Darwin could only dream about.

First, a birthday salute video from some of Darwins greatest admirers-

And here is the excellent program by NOVA about the final nail in the coffin of "intelligent design" versus the establishment clause of our constitution, Kitzmiller Vs. Dover....

Happy Birthday Charles, and thanks!
