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.
