"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

This is one of the victims in Texas where a deranged asshole murdered 10 people.
Pakistani exchange student Sabika Sheikh, 18, was among the dead
What I wrote at the Wall Street Journal: Pakistani exchange student Sabika Sheikh, 18, was among the dead. What a waste of a life, killed by an idiot. I saw a photo of her. She looked very happy. She could have gone back to Pakistan and fixed that country. Or she could have stayed here and fixed this country.
