Darwin's Birthday

Isn't it interesting that discussions about the truth of Evolution so often reach the ridiculous argument that Evolution does not explain the creation of life.  Of course it doesn't actually attempt to do that.  The start of life is called Abiogenesis, not Evolution.

It is Charles Darwin's two hundred and second birthday today.  Why not celebrate it with a visit to Why Evolution is True, Jerry Coyne's blog.

I find it amazing how I have become so interested in Darwin's work during the course of my recovery from Christianity, and one of the best and clearest books that I have read on the subject is Richard Dawkins' "The Greatest Show on Earth".
