Remembering Darwin

The world will celebrate 200 years of Darwin's birth on 12th February 2009 as Darwin Day. The man who gave us the origin of species should never be allowed to fade away from the minds of people. Even today his principles can be applied to our modern day life. I still believe in the notion of "survival of the fittest" in this fleeting world. His theory of evolution did open the gates for researchers to explore the start of life even though some clergymen chose to differ. Creationism will always obstruct the views of Darwin in the search for the beginning. For the people it is a facile way to attribute evolution of life to a supernatural designer called God. Very few are actually interested in reading and understanding the works and complex theories of Darwin. Neither religion nor science has managed so far to give concrete evidence to the origin of life. Darwin's contribution shouldn't be viewed as an antithesis to creationism. We must also create space for rational thinkers to express their views in an attempt to connect the ideologies of both ends towards the search for the unknown.
