Happy Darwin Day

Charles Darwin was born 200 years ago today. Great site: www.darwinday.org I think I like Darwin so much because he was so surprized by his own discovery, and in fact was not thrilled by it. He enjoyed his garden and his insect collections, but not elaborating theories into the realm of speculation. It was Herbert Spencer who coined the term “survival of the fittest”, Darwin wasn’t interested in that train of thought. He was an honest naturalist. Now, that’s humanistic science.
