Feb 12, 1809 must have been an extraordinary day.
It is special for me because two of my heroes were born on that day. Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln were both born on this day 200 years ago. This year, 2009, is also the 150th anniversary of the publication of Darwin’s book, On The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection.
So I will dedicate the next couple of posts on Darwin and Lincoln.
Happy Birthday, Mr Lincoln and Happy Birthday Mr Darwin. The world is a better place for your having been here.
