Darwin Day

Filed under: Evolution — alexanderthegreatest @ 8:51 pm

On the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin, it’s interesting to note that so many historic figures are given their own holiday, it’s impossible to keep them straight.  Presidents’ Day is the canonical example.  Yet Darwin, certainly the most important scientist to emerge from the UK (yes, including Newton) and perhaps the man who had the greatest idea in all of history, has no holiday in his honor.  It’s ironic.
