Publication of "Origin"

It's now the 146th year since Darwin published his infamous, On the Origin of Species.

" In 1859, The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection was published in England to great acclaim. In this groundbreaking book by British naturalist Charles Darwin, he argued that species are the result of a gradual biological evolution in which nature encourages, through natural selection, the propagation of those species best suited to their environments. This book is unquestionably one of the most influential in the history of science."

Most creationists that I know will argue against evolution till they are blue in the face. When they condemn Darwin, if asked they absolutely don't know the name of his book.
