Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life was published on this day in 1859. At this point when some American textbooks are being labeled with evolution disclaimers, I’m choosing to celebrate this birthday loud and proud.

Happy Birthday to you, The Origin of the Species!
