Ramblings about what I encounter within the realm of the geosciences, as well as the occasional rant about nonsense.

Happy Darwin Day

Time flies. Why, I feel like it's only been a year since we last celebrated Charles Darwin's Birthday [/bad joke]. Anyway, I don't have much for this year except for a comic I found somewhere online (can't remember where off the top of my head).

Oh, it might have been from Facebook. If anybody hasn't joined the group "I Bet We Can Find 1,000,000 People Who DO Believe in Evolution Before June", today might be a good day. And yes, there has been ample comment on the use of the word 'Believe'. I'm willing to let it slide and mentally swap 'Believe' with 'Accept'.

That lil' Darwin image is from a webcomic named Dresden Codak. I like a lot of his work, I recommend you check it out. Link here: Original Comic

Thanks for the short post reminding us of the important date. Having recently read On the Origin of Species, I can't believe the google front page didn't didn't mark the anniversary of such an influential man's birth.

Ah, thank you very much. I like to try and link to the original source when I can, and I'd be surprised if the message on Facebook was the original.

I love the image from the comic.


All the Latin on this page is from my vague recollections from High School. There are mistakes in the text. I just was trying to get the point across

The photo of the travertine spring was taken in the small opening in the center of the image.
