What If.....February 12, 1809 Had Never Happened?


You've probably guessed or knew that Abraham Lincoln was born on that date. Born on the same date was Charles Darwin.

The current issue of Newsweek has an article on the two and how their contributions helped shape the world we know nearly 200 hundred years later. I haven't read the article yet but I've sure had fun imagining what my world would seem like if either---or neither---had ever been born.

My guess is if it didn't happen there would be about four or five separate countries occupying North America.

Also, we would be about 4 years behind in Genetic research.
