Darwin/Lincoln Bicentennial

It seems somewhat remarkable to me that even here in the middle of Kansas I’ve probably seen and heard more media coverage in the last week of Darwin’s birthday than Lincoln’s. Perhaps that’s a fitting testament to the ongoing and profound impact of Mr. Darwin’s theory and its broader impact both within and beyond the field of science. And while I’m fully appreciative of Darwin’s contributions, I happen to have a more geologically interesting way of honoring Mr. Lincoln…


Happy Birthday to two giants of history!
