Today is the birthday of Charles Darwin, the godfather of evolutionary biology. He would have been 198 years old. I wore my “I believe in science” t-shirt as a tribute. A colleague in our department baked an awesome cake in the shape of a leather-bound Origin of Species book! I missed out and didn’t get to eat any of it, but I bet it tasted like sweet, sweet heresy. Oh Charles… Did you ever dream that people would be baking birthday cakes for you 125 years after your death? Darwin is about as immortal as anyone can be.
