Happy Darwin’s Day, everyone.
Here’s to the man who rang the bell of reason heard round the world, whose curiosity and thirst for knowledge led him to the most logical of conclusions, who dared to do what few would do, who shook the foundations of superstition to this day.
And while it is true that he was not the first with this idea, shocking as it was in his day and prior, nor was he the only one in his time that did so, still, it is a wonder and a testament to the true strength of humanity, the ability to learn and to puzzle and finally to arrive at an astonishing conclusion.
So here’s to Darwin, my friends, and three cheers to his memory:
Huzzah! Huzzah, I say, and huzzah again.
Till the next post, then.
