A Toast to Our Unifying Theory of Biology
On this day, 1859, Charles Darwin published 'On the Origin of Species' (damn you, Google! You didn't even give this one a highlight! ).
Cheers to the ongoing pursuit of getting to know ourselves.
"Natasha has just come up to the window from the courtyard and opened it wider so that the air may enter more freely into my room. I can see the bright green strip of grass beneath the wall, and the clear blue sky above the wall, and sunlight everywhere. Life is beautiful. Let the future generations cleanse it of all evil, oppression and violence, and enjoy it to the full."
