Evolution's Anniversary...

- - It was 150 years ago in November of 1859 that Charles Darwin published and expounded upon his theory of evolution and natural selection.

Although evolution has become a cornerstone of the sciences, it remarkably remains controversial in some circles. The doctrines of so-called "scientific creationism" and "intelligent design" continue to be dragged before school boards for inclusion in a science curriculum, although neither is scientific and both are essentially religious dogma masquerading as science.

Belief in God and evolution need not be mutually exclusive, despite the contentions of some religious fundamentalists. I find it far more marvelous to think of the deity as continuing to refine His creation through evolution rather than render it the product of a single, static act...

...have patience with others.-- God's not done with us yet!
