It wasn’t until I went to Antarctica that I realized just how amazing of a place it was…the incredible whale experience, all the penguins it was breathtaking. The Galapagos Islands are one of the most remarkable places on earth and anyone who visits them is moved and understands the importance of conservation. I believe responsible tourism is the answer allow people to visit these places so they learn to respect what is there but at the same time make sure that their visit does not impact the environment.

The majority of Galapagos Animals are unique in the world and can only be seen in this group of beautiful Islands.

The Galapagos National Park and the Charles Darwin research Station are doing a good job in preserving this Archipelago.

Is Darwinism now a ‘religion,’ a belief system, a scientism? As he has been worshipped in the halls of our universities, let us now worship him now in the media. Let us sing songs of praise to him. Seeing how Darwinism influenced Hitler, it is scary to think how the morality of the “survival of the fittest” will effect our world.
