Tomorrow is Darwin Day

Tomorrow is a special Darwin Day, the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin and a commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species. Why should you care?

You should care because Charles Darwin was a visionary scientist.

darwin day february 12Darwin envisioned a world of a profound age in which small actions can accumulate into astonishing transformations. He was able to see that apparently disparate things are actually not completely separate. He achieved the insight that the biological diversity of the world is not an arbitrary doodle by some divine sketch artist in the sky. He perceived that biological diversity is the product of the interaction between living things and the world that they encounter.

Darwin found a meaning in life and a meaning in death, and a meaning in the recreation of life. Furthermore, he based his search for this meaning not on hallucinations or imaginations, but on the facts of the world as he explored it. Darwin asked not to be believed, but to be tested.

Celebrate Darwin Day because there are people in the world who seek to undo Darwin’s vision, and to prevent people from gaining and sharing new visions of the sort that Darwin gained.

    Genesis 1:27, “So God made man in his own image”.
    Genesis 2:7, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground.”
    Genesis 2:21-22, “And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, …the Lord had taken from man, made he a woman, & brought her unto the man”.
    From the above verses, it is obvious that God formed man/woman from dust instead of transforming apes to human beings.
