Ten pound note[edit]

In 2017, Darwin's face is being replaced with that of Jane Austen on the ten pound note. Much as I like Austen, Conservapedia are going to have a field day with this one. --Let Them Eat Cake (talk) 22:08, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

In 2017, Darwin's face is being replaced with that of Jane Austen on the ten pound note. Much as I like Austen, a half-dozen stupid men in the United States are going to have a field day with this one. Fixed that for you.

There is no mention on the article about his hypothesis of pangenesis which was essentially Lamarckian. This paper explains [1] (The Rise and Fall of Darwin's Second Theory, Journal of the History of Biology). Jean (talk) 17:20, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Stupid question[edit]

Why did I hear Darwin was sexist? Is that true?

A Toast to one of the Giants upon who's shoulders we humbly stand.[edit]

We already have the Poe Toaster, thus to carry on this noble tradition, we ought to have a Darwin Toaster. And just as the Poe Toaster bought a bottle of cognac and some roses, we too must place an offering. So RationalWiki, I ask you what Beveridge would be fitting for this great upright-ape? and of course how many roses should we leave? Leucippus 20:14, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
