Happy Birthday Mr Darwin

If your optimally-evolved-for-reproduction lifespan hadn’t removed you from the gene pool, you’d be 200 today, Charles Darwin. The ultimate rationalist, the man who removed any lingering necessity for the assorted god theories beyond the need for comfort some people have, and the beautifully simple idea that allowed the massive diversity of life to flower into glorious existence from a few random aminos in the primordial soup. Happy Birthday, Charles!
