Darwin Day

Take the opportunity today of all days to look into Darwin’s theory of evolution something many people say they “know” about but clearlydo not. You will find that most people claiming to know about evolution and saying they don’t believe it actually have no idea at all what it is using flawed and misunderstood arguments to try and disprove it (missing links etc) and preserve they’re fragile psyche and faith. It doesn’t take your belief in a fact to make it a fact nor does ignorance invalidate it. To understand nature we must understand Darwin’s theory and I’m afraid that also means letting go of any notion that we are special within the cosmos because we’re not and that is an amazingly grand thought. We are the product of chemical elements evolving into biological entities with DNA, replicating, mutating, naturally selecting advantageous random mutations in a non-random way in order to adapt to the environment.
