Then there’s Olivia Judson reminding us about a deadly aspect of evolution by natural selection

Olivia JudsonOlivia Judson on the influence of science and biology on modern life.

Yesterday, Tuesday, Nov. 24, was The Big Day: it was exactly 150 years since Charles Darwin’s “On the Origin of Species” was first published. In this book, Darwin described how evolution by natural selection works — and presented a huge body of evidence, drawn from every field of biology then known, that evolution can account for the patterns we see in nature.

============================
An evolve-by-date or become extinct! Wow ain’t that a concept? Of course no wonder that it’s Olivia J reminding us about our evolutionary existential reality!

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!

But never fear reasonable folk! As long as Pharyngula (read PZ Myers) lives the dastardly creations and slanders concocted by the likes of Ray Comfort and his current boy toy, Kirk Cameron will be exposed.
