Happy Bicentennial, Charles Darwin!

Charles Darwin Giclee Print by Julia Margaret Cameron

Today marks the 200th birth anniversary of the man who was recognized by TIME magazine as the greatest iconoclast of the last millennium. Indeed, his ideas are so radical and avant garde even for the present generation that academia all over the world covertly avoid mention of his On the Origin of Species as it directly contradicts cherished ideas propounded by religion.

Theists, emboldened by mankind’s innate vulnerability to embracing ideas of self-preservation, have steadfastly refused to assimilate evidences that prove the contrary.

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
