Happy Darwin Day everyone! Today, one of the greatest marine biologists ever, Charles Darwin, would have turned 204 years old. We have a lot to thank for his observations! They were a revolution in most fields of life science. What's your favourite Darwin's observation?
The impossibility of conceiving that this universe arose through chance, seems to me the chief argument for the existence of God; but whether this is an argument of real value, I have never been able to decide. I am, also, induced to defer to a certain extent to the judgment of the many able men who have fully believed in God; but here again I see how poor an argument this is. The safest conclusion seems to be that the whole subject is beyond the scope of man’s intellect -Charles Darwin
Charles Darwin 1809-1882 An english naturalist who was famous for his famous theory of "natural selection". As a young scientist he set sail on the voyage of the Beagle in 1831 and came back with observations on the varieties of fossils and living animals which made him question the Bible's story of creation. His findings were published in "The Origin of Species" in 1859. This theory caused a real stir and was sold out straight away.
