Did you know that on December 27, 1831, Charles Darwin embarks on his journey aboard the HMS Beagle? During this journey, he will begin to formulate the theory of evolution. Great!

December 27 1931. Charles Darwin & the Theory of Evolution

Charles Darwin

Today and in his honor, some inspirational quotes by Charles Darwin:

An American monkey, after getting drunk on brandy, would never touch it again, and thus is much wiser than most men.

To kill an error is as good a service as, and sometimes even better than, the establishing of a new truth or fact.

I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created parasitic wasps with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars.

We can allow satellites, planets, suns, universe, nay whole systems of universes, to be governed by laws, but the smallest insect, we wish to be created at once by special act.

A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections, – a mere heart of stone.

Man tends to increase at a greater rate than his means of subsistence.

I have called this principle, by which each slight variation, if useful, is preserved, by the term of Natural Selection.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

    Darwin’s book, On the Origin of Species has been influential; not because of its content (it is a really boring read) but because of the atheists who took it and used it in support of their world view.

    The evolution battle is often MISrepresented as science against religion – this is baloney!

    The real battle is between good science and Darwinism. When molecules to man evolution is scrutinised using the scientific method, it crumbles.

    The scientific method demands observation, measurement and repeatability. Molecules to man evolution has none of these, all it has is circumstantial evidence which is open to interpretation. Ask yourself: What evidence is there that our great .……great grandfather was a self replicating molecule?

    Dr John Sanford (Geneticist and inventor of the GeneGun) said :

    “The bottom line is that the primary axiom [of Darwinian/Macro evolution] is categorically false, you can’t create information with misspellings, not even if you use natural selection.”
