Evolution 150 Years Old Today!

1 07 2008

Okay that headline is of course not entirely accurate since evolution has been in effect since the very first cells formed, however it was on 1 July 1858 (150 years ago today) that the idea of natural selection was first presented to the public.

Of course don’t tell anyone in Texas or Louisiana because they’ll just get all upset that you’re making them think too hard.

The Beagle Project has a summary of the significance of this day in scientific history.

Happy Darwin Day!
