"Darwin was the first to use data from nature to convince people that evolution is true, and his idea of natural selection was truly novel. It testifies to his genius that the concept of natural theology, accepted by most educated Westerners before 1859, was vanquished within only a few years by a single five-hundred-page book. On the Origin of Species turned the mysteries of life's diversity from mythology into genuine science." -- Jerry Coyne

My favorite chess openings
For several years I have been using the exact same opening every single game. I do this because I feel comfortable with the positions I get.
When I'm White I pretend I'm Black and use the King's Indian Defense. As Black I use the Sicilian, preferably the Najdorf Variation, when White plays P-K4. Any other move by White and I use the King's Indian Defense.
