    We celebrate the 12th. of February as Lincoln's birthday, but he also shares the date with another man of equal influence in another field, Charles Darwin.

    Darwin 200 years later: Evolution by selection of quotations

    So it did. Darwin is in a class with Copernicus, with Einstein, in short, with the great scientific thinkers of the ages.

    OK deal, but we need to have the day celebrated on some other religions holiday and not on his real birthday.

    Easter it is, then. The Easter Bunny brings candy and goodies, the Natural Selection Monster will get you if you ride your new red wagon down the hill and across the busy street. It just might start a tradition.
