Happy Birthday Mr. Darwin







Today is Charles Darwin's birthday. To read more about him check out Vision Learning.








Here are some great pieces of art by Derek Chatwood. I rather enjoy this one. He even has a script that goes with it!


Jesus Christ
Positives: Impressive stamina. Historically known for taking a beating, staying on his feet. Has history of miraculous resurrection.
Negatives: Invented Pacifism. Dangerous habit of turning the other cheek.

Charles Darwin
Positives: Invented Natural Selection. Understands what's at stake with "Survival of the Fittest".
Negatives: Theology student, nearly became an Anglican parson. Mixed feelings punching his Lord's Only Son and Savior in the face.

Inspired by the Creation Museum that opened deep in the craw of Kentucky this month. Proudly displays dinosaurs mingling with Adam and Eve, less than 6000 years ago. Noah had some on the ark, but apparently they sinned once they got here.

  1. Oh, come on John. Everyone knows that Jesus learned pacifism from Buddhists during his stay in India. Duh.

  2. I like the wrestling image except for poor Chas' facial hair. Whither the fluffy white beard and what is up with the mutton chops?

    Incidentally, I love the British £10 note. It has HM on the front (naturally), and Darwin, the Beagle, and flora & fauna. As far as I know, it was pretty uncontroversial.
