This video makes me so very happy. To see our president speak so clearly and intelligently regarding the value of science is almost surreal, considering the past eight years. He mentions the anniversary of Darwin’s birth, and the mere fact that he referred to the occasion says a lot, especially considering the percentage of our country that holds extreme antipathy towards Darwin. So, I think it shows that Obama knows the significance of evolutionary theory, and the enormously positive ramifications it has had on modern science.
