HAPPY YEAR (and a half) OF THE... DARWIN!

WAHOOOOOOO!

Today, 150 years ago, natural selection was introduced to the world via Darwin's and Wallace's works at a meeting of the Linnean Society of London. Today marks the beginning of a year-and-a-half-long bash, celebrating such landmarks as the 150th anniversary of evolution (today), the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin (November 2009), and Darwin's 200th birthday (also Lincoln's, Feb. 12 of next year).

Let the festivities begin!

Nice! It's neat that someone keeps count. ^_^

Keep count?! I revere Darwin! This year-and-a-half will go down in history as every evolution nerd's dream! And I get to revel in it as a youthful student full of evolutionary passion!

(wow, three exclamation points. true that.)

My sincerest apologies! Darwin truly is for the greater good!

(just two? Shame on me. XD)
