Just got through reading the article about Darwin’s legacy: http://su.pr/21nK1n.
This question is asked: All things considered, do you believe Darwin was a great luminary in the path of human progress?
Answer from the article:
What has the theory of evolution done for the practical benefit of humanity? It’s helped our understanding of ourselves, yet compared to, say, the discovery of penicillin or the invention of the World Wide Web, I wonder why Darwin occupies this position at the pinnacle of esteem. I can only imagine he has been put there by a vast public relations exercise.
My answer: Absolutely nothing!
