Fact of the Day: Ancient Evolution

The ancient Greek philosopher Anaximander may have lived many centuries before Charles Darwin, but he gave the world the earliest known thoughts on evolution. While most of his ideas were later proven inaccurate by modern evolutionary studies, he is admired for being the first known person to use evidence and logic to explain mankind's origin rather than through super-natural creation myths.

So...what's a girl to do but start a NEW blog...then, I figured out how to get back control of my original blog (with a blogger's help)....so now, I have two blogs and don't know what to do with them. hahhha....
