Question by bloggersvilleusa: Is the atheist love for Darwin the ultimate revenge of the nerds?
source for quotes below:
“As a teen, his nickname was “Gas,” a reference to his penchant for smelly chemistry experiments.”
“Darwin popped (a beetle) into his mouth for temporary storage. The insect quickly emitted a noxious spray, prompting Darwin to spit it out and also drop the other two beetles.”
nerdy torturing of animals:
“His father … (declared) that he “cared for nothing but shooting, dogs and rat-catching.””
nerdy efforts to gain social acceptance:
At Cambridge University, Darwin belonged to the “Gourmet Club,” which met weekly to dine upon fare like hawk, bittern and owl.
“Darwin aspired to become a doctor, but he loathed the sight of blood and quit.”
a nerdy unremarkable loner:
“Darwin the student was unremarkable.”
“His father considered him to be excessively lazy”
“Darwin was chronically seasick ”
nerdy food diet:
“On the Beagle voyages, Darwin ate puma (it reportedly tasted like veal), iguanas, giant tortoises, armadillos and agoutis, the last a species of large rodent that Darwin declared to be “the best meat I ever tasted … Darwin ate rhea, an ostrich-like bird.”
“In 1839, at the age of 29, Darwin married his first cousin, Emma Wedgewood.”
“Darwin loved music, but he was tone deaf.”
nerdy social isolation:
“Darwin and Emma also played two games of backgammon every day. Darwin kept a running score for almost 40 years. Emma usually won.”
“Darwin found Shakespeare to be “so intolerably dull that it nauseated me.” ”
nerdy focus on the trivial:
“Darwin, a self-taught zoologist, spent eight years on the taxonomy of barnacles.”
“After the Beagle voyages, Darwin never traveled far from his home near the village of Downe in Kent, England. He was plagued by chronic poor health and unexplained ailments, whose symptoms, including headaches, heart palpitations, muscle spasms, pain, vomiting and vertigo, sent him to bed for months at a time.”
The San Diego Union is “a creationist website”? LOL!

1. Websites made by creationists do not have any basis on their information.
