A Reason to Celebrate

          Today (or technically yesterday, considering that it is 2:30am here in Texas) is definitely a reason to celebrate, and a reason to celebrate reason. November 24th 2009 is the 150th aniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin's On The Origin of Species. I don't have much to say, because it's late and I'm exhausted, but I just thought I'd put that out there. Just to remind everyone how much of modern medicine and biological research and discovery would not be possible if we did not understand The Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection. So, just remember the value of standing up for truth, like Darwin, Galilelo, and Socrates, who were put through a lot of shit just for standing up for the truth.
          And remember, believing in what makes you happy, rather than what is true, gets us nowhere.
