I live in Shrewsbury, Shropshire which these days goes on endlessly about Charles Darwin having been born locally and lived here. The references range from The Darwin Centre (town centre shopping and biggest carpark), to the new University (offshoot from Chester) to nearly everything you see in hotels promoting themselves to visitors like The Lion Hotel.
I get a bit tired of it now, although years ago it was OK as it was more understated, and not so much in your face. If only people knew how Darwin applied the Theory of Evolution to humanity, they would probably keep very quiet about his being a local. In his other works he suggested the Irish should be eliminated as a race, and his works were the basis on which the Nazis and organisations like Planned Parenthood went on to justify racial genocides.
There is another factor relevant to this topic – that is that Darwin didn’t originate the Theory Of Evolution anyway. He copied it from its true inventor. In his long piece on exposing Mark Twain as a spook working for large corporations planning wars, he adds this interesting extra paragraph at the end.
