Today is the 208th birthday of two remarkably influential men. Abraham Lincoln was exactly the leader America needed when it most needed a leader. Charles Darwin changed forever the way we think about life on earth, including our own. It’s a sign of how the world has evolved that the abolition of slavery and the process of natural selection seem obvious to us now.

Beel....the city of Darwin was actually named for Charles Darwin. Darwin has an interesting history....bombed repeatedly by the Japanese...devastated by a cyclone....then evolved into one of Australia's most modern capital city in the nation.

Copied from: History of Darwin | City of Darwin

.......Darwin was founded in 1869 and was originally called Palmerston. The port of the city was always known as Port Darwin and the city was eventually renamed to Darwin in 1911. The harbour was discovered in 1839 by Lt. John Lort Stokes, who named it after a former shipmate British evolutionist Charles Darwin.............

 

Check out this Darwin teenager, Shiane Hawke. If you haven't heard her singing...you will be shocked...just like the judges.
