Darwin blogs the Voyage of the Beagle


I don’t know how I missed this, but some guy named Charles Darwin is blogging a sea voyage he’s on. It seems he’s keeping a journal, and he is blogging the entries so the rest of us can tag along. Read it as an antidote to the Luskin/Wells stupidity.

Hat tip to Phil Plait.


Antidote? Those who need an antidote won’t take it, and those who do take it didn’t really need one.



You don’t understand. Neither Luskin nor Wells are stupid. Instead, they hope that as successful pseudoscientific charlatans, they can persuade gullible, scientifically illiterate Americans that their mendacious intellectual pornography known as Intelligent Design creationism is a “better” example of science than we obsessed Darwin lovers and otherwise evil evilutionists are promoting. Sadly, as we know all too well, they have been quite successful.

There has been a daily diary from the Voyage of the Beagle since 2006 on Blogspot. Roger R. (not sure who that is,) has also been kind enough to add diaries from Darwin’s shipmates and Cap’n Fitzroy himelf. Be sure to check out the poetry of John Clare from the links on the sidebar.

Thanks for the link, Mike, the Blogspot series is excellent, giving a lot of useful context.

For some reason, both blogs seem to start when the ship sets sail, skipping the earliest entries in Darwin’s diary. They give an interesting intro, and the whole diary is available here:
