Happy birthday to the most influential man of the last 1000 years!

Mr. Charles Darwin!

The next time you hear someone say, "If evolution is true and we descended from monkeys then why are there still monkeys around?" You have my permission to tell them, after you slap some sense into them, that the theory of evolution says that humans did not descend from monkeys but humans and monkeys did descend from a single common ancestor, as did all life on earth.

It's the dividing line between those who will be watching the games in the Thunderdome and those who will be participants in them. There are some things that are basic FACTS and ironically separate man from monkey.

Kal: Well, things that separate man from most monkeys. Some monkeys are more equal than others (just saying).

You know God will not be pleased you did this. At least you did not give Charlie credit for the last 2010 years. That would have really pissed God off. He has a son you know. One I assume he is rather proud of.

But then I guess according to the NEW Testament, God has mellowed some these past 1000 years. He is not conceding top billing, just allowing a few mortals to share in the spotlight.

I often smile when we humans tell someone who is dead and has been for awhile - "Happy Birthday". Seems kinda counter intuitive. The guy's dead. How happy can he be?
