Degeneration Charles Darwin

What Killed Charles Darwin?


Last week, Charles Darwin became the latest “patient” at an annual conference that aims to unravel the medical mysteries of long-dead historical figures. A leading gastroenterologist diagnosed three conditions that may have plagued the English naturalist throughout his life and contributed to his death at 73. Past conferences have plumbed the lives and deaths of prominent individuals ranging from Christopher Columbus and Florence Nightingale to Alexander the Great and Claudius.

Way to selectively chop up Darwin

by Schlauberger

Here's what he actually said:
"With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilized men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination. We build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to small-pox. Thus the weak members of civilized societies propagate their kind

What do I mention in my brochure about Charles Darwin

My biology homework project says: You must design and make a travel brochure for a cruise or boat charter that follows the voyages taken by Charles Darwin and the HMS Beagle. The types of people who would pay to take this sort of trip would do so to learn more about the history and discoveries made by Darwin so your brochure must include specific highlights and details about Darwin's most famous findings and destinations. You need to include where Darwin departed from and returned to as well as at least 5 other of his destinations (minimum).

HELP!! I need sources where I can…

There is an excellent book which describes Darwin's voyage very well giving all the information about where he went, the things he saw and the discoveries he made. It is called "The Voyage of the Beagle" and was written by Charles Darwin. Read the contents pages which will tell you exactly where he went and allow you to refer to the text for other details.

You don't even have to go to the library to read the book, it is online. There are lots of other web sites with information and maps. Google "The Voyage of the Beagle" and check some of the links.

Should I follow my dream or go the easy route? Career/ school?

Should I follow my dream or go the easy route? Career/ school?
My dream job is to travel to third world countries and help them. Nothing would make me happier. But it is very hard to get to that point. Years of school and experience is required (90% of jobs in the Peace Corps require a bachelors degree). I understand that it doesn't pay very much (which I'm willing to sacrifice) but if I travel a lot then it would be hard to raise a family.

I am currently getting my Associates degree in culinary arts to be a chef (on my second quarter). It is fun but it is my second…

You should follow your dream, for several reasons.

You only have one life, and if you are about 20, it's already one-quarter gone. Older people rush to kill young people's dreams. Parents often tell people they shouldn't follow their dream. They told Charles Darwin he should be a surgeon. They told Cezanne to get a job in the bank. They told Elton John to get a job in the government. Those older people have had their lives; they need to learn where to draw the line.

If you go the way that makes you unhappy, you will sooner or later change course, and will have wasted…
