Nearly 200 years after the birth of this brilliant Englishman and a century and a 1/2 after publishing his famous works on Evolution, Charles_Darwin_aged_51_cropCharles Robert Darwin has still not earned his due.  Last year a docudrama was released entitled, Creation.  The movie details Darwin’s life work but also portrays a man tormented by the loss of his daughter and at odds with his pious wife over the scientific evidence that he could not ignore nor deny.  The closest venue for me, living in Central NY, to view this movie is New York City, over 5+ hours away.  NYC is home to 7 million residents.  Those 7 million residents can watch Creation in a grand total of 1 theater!!  Yes that’s 1 theater!  February 12th, 2010 will commemorate the 201st year since Darwin’s birth and yet as a nation and a world we still cling to myths, magic, and folklore to explain our universe and it’s creation.  It would be dishonest to claim that science has uncovered all the answers to the wonders of the natural world.  But it is even more dishonest to ignore all that science has answered and therefore proven false.  There is not now, nor has there ever been one single piece of scientifically validated evidence that allows us to posit the existence of a supreme being.  Although Darwin is credited with popularizing Evolutionary theory, history show us that the ideas of evolution date as far back as the 6th century BCE, 600 years before the alleged birth of Jesus Christ!  Can you imagine for one moment if we still we’re claiming that the planet was flat and that the Earth was the center of the Universe?  All of these things have been proven false by science not religion.  Yet for some reason we still belief that a supernatural being is responsible for the creation of the natural world….HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHUCK and we will keep fighting for you!!!
