Remembering Charles Darwin
Today is the 200th Anniversary of Darwin's birth. As my dad used to point out in his high school biology class, faith and reason are not polar opposites. They are two sides of the same coin, joined together by a common love of truth. And so Darwin's theory of evolution shouldn't be viewed as an affront to faith, but rather as an admirable attempt to answer the "how" of our existence. It has never been so proud as to attempt to answer "why."
