“The world needs dreamers, and the world needs doers, but above all the world needs dreamers who do.”-- Sarah Ban Breathnach
As I was reading, I couldn’t help but recall the overwhelming feelings I first experienced when reading ‘Voyage of the Beagle’, which I chose to read before ‘On The Origin Of Species’ in order to have a more chronological understanding of Darwin’s life.
It’s incredibly discouraging to me that the public school system highlights such a man as Christopher Columbus, yet, there’s no mention of Charles Darwin and his literal and figurative struggle for existence amidst the HMS Beagle expedition.
The rampant religious fundamentalism that continues to taint Darwin’s name and belittle his achievements without understanding his life at all, are maddeningly disrespectful.
It truly is amazing that Darwin even made it back alive from his expedition. So to toss the foundation of life science out simply because it doesn’t agree with Biblical scripture….it vexes me.
tha guy on the cliff he just finished highschool and what he did was he threw all his school papers and books over the cliff screaming “take that” personally i think that its really cool because in a way its like hes free. He went through four years of studying,exams,memorizing things that didn’t even matter but now he’s free now he can finally be free and i bet its the best feeling in the world
great, now all the birds and shit gonna be learning human knowledge. get ready for society to be conquered by animals. look outside and a deer is riding a bicycle down the road. stuck in line at the grocery store cause some rabbit is arguing with the clerk about a coupon. fish swims up the toilet while youre droppin a log, asks to borrow some salt. thanks a lot, guy on the cliff
