    Did a teacher really just say that Darwin didn't change the world?

    lol at haters. I'm listening to Stronger in support of a man who at very least, isn't afraid to step up.

    Also, wtf, who doesn't hire the best people they can find and afford?

    Well, you sir have 14K plus posts on a fashion forum since 2008, yet think Steve Jobs is not significant enough to have changed the world in some way. Trying to make yourself feel better? Are you not doing enough?

    I'm not really much of a "new york mag" kind of guy but I thought their coverage of his show was pretty on-point compared to where I stood with regards to it.

    this isn't an ad hominem attack of any kind, but you're an idiot.

    toy story changed the world. it might not have been affected every single facet of everybody's life, but it changed a world to a small degree. it showed the industry that cgi films could be successful. that they could have a great plot, characters, and children would still enjoy it.

    pixar changed the industry like disney changed the industry.

    the core of your argument is that art cannot change the world which is beyond retarded.


    what you dont think if darwin died somebody else as influential would have picked up on alfred russel wallace's work?

    darwin didn't fucking come up with evolution out of thin air. there was lamarck, hilaire, grant, chambers before him, cuvier and buffon before them, you could even consider aquinas and al-jahiz before them.




    my facebook feed is littered with steve jobs comments. we're talking about steve jobs on a style forum. if that doesn't allude to how much steve jobs has impacted our lives i'm at lost as to what other kind of personal experience i could point to to make my point



    /end rant. no more fo rme

    You talk a big game about some really important people, yet spend a fuck load of time posting on internet fashion forums.

    And no, this isn't a dig at anyone else of Styleforum, I love this site and I like clothing a lot. It's a dig at Teger and his silly ideas.

    I was at the grocery store when the news started to come out and I heard no less than 5 people talking about it/calling others to tell them/etc.

    not really too in tune with the history of it, but that was my understanding too.

    There's a fundamental difference between lamarckianism and darwinism. there's no natural linear progression from one to the other.

    Point taken. Though, I was just exaggerating the point of the quote.


    lol.

    lamarck was important because he helped introduce the idea of evolution as a concept into the conversation -- even though his understanding was really wrong -- it was an important step in moving away from creationism.

    for me, the lasting testament to darwin's stupendous originality was this: it wasn't until the 1930s that people actually began to accept his theory, for the previous 60 years, after he published the origin of the species, his understanding of natural selection was just too radical and new.
