Darwin Online

Paul Hsieh has pointed me to an outstanding resource: “The Complete Work of Charles Darwin Online.”

Wow. It’s just stunning that such a rich collection of material is available to the public, at no charge. And to think that, when I was a child, the internet did not even exist.

This seems like a good time point out that, on its registered users’ page, the Ayn Rand Institute hosts Keith Lockitch’s lecture, “Darwin and the Discovery of Evolution;” see the Complete Video Collection.

Though Darwin is subject to increasingly shrill attacks from the evangelical movement, the rest of us owe him a debt of gratitude for ushering in the modern science of biology.
