Today is Darwin Day!
I was really lucky and went to schools that taught biology quite well as I was growing up. Not only did I come out of school with a fairly good idea of how evolution works, I even had the opportunity to take a high school biotechnology class in which we did things like very basic DNA testing and learned about what was then (1999) cutting edge genetics research. I have since learned that not everyone was so lucky.
What did you learn about evolution growing up? How has your perspective and understanding changed as you’ve aged?
