    To Ludwig Buchner (1824-1899).

    Ludwig Buchner was a German Physician and Philosopher. Why do we care? Because he was a key proponent of Scientific Materialism. His body of work espousing the natural sciences helped turn many across Europe away from the stale, biblical concept of creation towards learning more about how the world and the universe actually works.

    Buchner was also responsible for helping to spread the message of a guy called Darwin to a wider audience.

    So lift a glass or eat some cake in honour of Ludwig Buchner. :gift:

    Thanks for posting this. It's depressing to see how all the anti-science, anti-facts morons have somehow managed to get into the spotlight.
