Darwin Day Soon!

It's only three days til the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of the most influential scientists in history. That's right, February 12th is Darwin Day! His work wasn't completely groundbreaking, you could say it was...evolutionary.

In case you're curious, here's a brief list of the scientists that come to mind when I think of the most influential:

Francis Bacon
Albert Einstein
Galileo Galilei
Isaac Newton

These names should mean more to humanity than any number of athletes, actors, writers, or generals. No one has done more to improve the state of man than those that do pure science.
