On the 197th anniversary of his birth, I think it's important to reflect on these thoughtful words of Charles Darwin:

"To my mind it accords better with what we know of the laws impressed on matter by the Creator, that the production and extinction of the past and present inhabitants of the world should have been due to secondary causes, like those determining the birth and death of the individual."

From Chapter 10 of his famous work.
