'On 12 February, a Son, Charles'

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

The greatest mind that has so far graced our species came into the world on February 12th, 1809, in Shrewsbury, England.

Charles Robert Darwin, 1809-1882.

What we owe to him cannot be overestimated.

Google's celebrating too, lookee! :-)

Yeah, it rocks. Unless you stop to think too much about how you belong to the same species as those people ... :-o
