As of late, I have been wondering: what ever happened to Alfred Russel Wallace? 2009 AD saw the celebration of Charles Darwin's 200 birthday with the impartation of various doxologies and even the Kyle Butt vs. Dan Barker debate. But what about good ol' Alfred Russel Wallace? Is it that he was born in 1823 AD (January 8th) and his 200th will not come up until 2023 AD? Was his 100th celebrated? Was his 150th celebrated? I do not seem to remember.
Alfred Russell Wallace, co-conceiver with Charles Darwin of the theory of natural selection:
"'I fully accept Mr. Darwin's conclusion as to the essential identity of man's bodily structure with that of the higher mammalian, and his descent from some ancestral form common to man and the anthropoid apes,'1
