Happy Birthday. 200 Today!

February 12th 2009 would have been Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday if he’d have somehow evolved into some Methuselah-like being.

He was one of the most important scientists of his era – if not any era – and his discoveries that formed the Theory of Evolution have transformed how we understand the world around us.

Today is Darwin Day and I, for one, will be sinking one or two in his honour. Sorry I forgot the card though.

Also, Happy Birthday wishes  to my sister-in-law Marie who isn’t anywhere near 200 today.
