Origin of the Species published 150 years ago, 1859/11/24
On the Origin of Species was published on the 24th of November 1859. This means we are actually celebrating the 150th birthday of the Origin today. Congratulations everyone!
I can feel a lot of positive energy from that time 150 years ago and more. It was a momentous time, in retrospect, but Darwin himself lived through exhausting psychic and physical afflictions during most of his adult life!
