Today is Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday, as well as the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species.

While this day is excited for those of us who admire Darwin for his brilliant scientific achievements, it is also a day that should be a catalyst for us to re-double our efforts in the fabricated “Evolution vs. creation” debate.

The theory of evolution qualifies as a scientific fact, by every standard in the scientists toolbox (the scientific method). But sadly, we live in a world where there are people that are either intentionally deceiving the public to promote their ideology (by the why, science is not an ideology, it’s the method  used to uncover the truth about our natural world and cosmos), or they are confidently ignorant. Because, every single objection to evolutionary theory has been easily refuted by the consensus of the scientific community.

Thank you Darwin, for your role in the exponential advancement of science!

 

 

 

 

Darwin gave mankind one of the greatest examples of a successful scientific hypothesis, and possibly the best example of  the fulfillment of predictions in a scientific hypothesis.

Nature has released a great podcast for the special occasion

There will be more Darwin Day celebration to come…..
