February 12th also marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin. Darwin’s On the Origin of the Species is still considered controversial today by religious conservatives in North America. But the rest of the world is celebrating his theories of natural selection and evolution.

It is Darwin’s daring theories that made Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation possible.

Darwin’s findings that all species of life have evolved over time from common ancestors, and Lincoln’s fight to keep the Union intact and free the slaves, are some of the most important developments in modern history.

Celebrate two great thinkers today: Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin.

Remembering Bettie Page

Bettie Page, the world’s most famous pinup girl, died today at the age of 85.

Famous for her controversial sexy photos in the 1950s, Page retired from modeling in her Thirties and became a born-again Christian. But she never felt ashamed of her nudity. “I never thought it was shameful. I felt normal…God approves of nudity. Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, they were naked as jaybirds.”

Page’s photos are still some of the most popular and collectible pinups today.
