Darwin Day

Although technically on February 12, Darwin Day is on its way to, hopefully, being a national holiday - ideally across the world, as his ideas effect how we still practice science. His evolution through natural selection is the dominant scientific idea with respect to biological research out there today.

Sure, there's "controversy" with respect to how things evolve (gradualism vs. punctuated equilibrium, for example), but there is no real controversy as to whether or not evolution happened. Those who say it is wrong or doesn't exist have their heads in the sand, or up their asses.

Obviously it's a slow posting weekend. I went ice-fishing yesterday and it was...what's the term..."fucking cold". Had I known about the Darwin Day celebration, I would have raised a glass to the man. Sadly, I will now wait until next year and organize a party of some sort. Anyone in the area is welcome to come.

That's all I have for today. Rock on.
