Lots of Darwin goodies

In advance of Charles Darwin's 199th birthday next Tuesday, the Guardian newspaper has been going Darwin bonkers. Some links for you:

They've also put together a rather nice Darwin Bicentenary page in preparation for next year's celebrations.

I'm not sure that I buy John van Wyhe (FCD)'s claim that Darwin was no atheist. Although Darwin might never have come right out and admitted it, describing himself as an agnostic, there were some very good reasons for his doing this. Didn't St Peter deny knowing Jesus three times when it was expedient? That didn't exactly stop him from being a Christian.
