Charles Darwin endorses Barack Obama

The HMS Beagle Trust is an organisation with a healthy amount of political diversity amongst its directors and patrons. As such, your Beagle bloggers, however strong our personal preferences may be, have resisted the temptation to formally endorse a candidate for the US presidency on this blog.

We do note with vigorous interest and a certain amount of thinly veiled delight, however, that our great hero, Charles Darwin, has endorsed Mr. Obama.

Claims that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin supports the teaching of creationism in science classes are gratuitous smears based upon misreporting by a media in the tank for Barack Obama, as I have blogged here.

As for those who would project their own political fantasies onto the world view of Charles Darwin, I am deeply skeptical of the notion that a man unafraid of pursuing scientific truth wherever it might lead could ever support the long-discredited Marx-lite philosophy of persons of the left who would deny human nature in favor of utopianist dreams.
