Today is Darwin Day

Today is a great day for science. Notably today marks the 200th anniversary of evolutionary biologists Charles Darwin’s birthday. (an interesting ironic aside is that another important figure in world history Abraham Lincoln was also born today and Darwin and Lincoln are rumored to be born only hours apart)

And on another front the U. S. Supreme Court has ruled that Vaccines Are not to blame for autism! Scientific research and the scientific method triumphs over woo, pseudoscience, and guessing! Quoting from the article ABC News: Court Says Vaccine Is Not to Blame for Autism:

The judges in the cases said the evidence was overwhelmingly contrary to the parents’ claims — and backed years of science that found no risk.

"It was abundantly clear that petitioners’ theories of causation were speculative and unpersuasive," the court concluded in one of a trio of cases ruled on Thursday.

Interestingly PBS had a rebroacast of another landmark court case won by science on just the other night with Nova – Judgment Day Intelligent Design on Trial perhaps in honor of Darwin’s birthday week celebration.

Happy Darwin Day to everyone!
