Florida Citizens for Science vice-president Jonathan Smith once again pens a newspaper column, this time honoring Darwin Day with a lesson about evidences for evolution all around us: See Evolution Evidence in Daily Life.
As a society, we remain ambivalent toward the subject, not realizing that trying to equate Darwin with our modern-day understanding of evolution is rather like associating the Wright brothers to space flight.
If, as a nation, we wish to compete in a rapidly advancing technological world arena, we should take note of the advice offered by Darwin: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”
In America, the time for that change is long overdue.
