Today is Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday, and I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge nerd when it comes to evolutionary biology (seriously). It’s amazing how one man completely changed the way the world thinks in terms of science and our origins, and how some people still refuse to believe evolution happened.
A few months ago, the Church of England apologize to Charles Darwin (126 years after the fact) for calling him a heretic and denying evolution. Hey it’s a start, maybe in the year 2126, the church will apologize for hating on gay people too!
Either way, I came up with a list of books that I think are awesome in terms of evolutionary theory goes in case anyone is interested in reading them… oh, and of course, an mp3 mix (you’d be surprised how little punk songs are written about natural and sexual selection… I wonder why?)
