Sure I could point out that it is also Honest Abe's birthday but let's talk about what we can thank Darwin for. He got people to look at biology in a new way. He obviously didn't write evolutionary theory as it exists today but he started that path.
 
Besides the Creationists believe in Super Evolution after the flood so they are coming around too.

Happy Darwin Day! Truly a good day for science, it was thanks to Darwin that we understand so much about life.  Truly a great man, an abolitionist, an explorer, a naturalist, a scientist, and a writer.

“Reason is the greatest enemy that faith has; it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but - more frequently than not - struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God” Martin Luther
 
I forgot about that. Freaking scientists with their logic and reason.

I'm really glad he came about and help give people an excuse not to believe in god. We surely can't have that. Wait! I have an idea you guys! we may not have been created, everything probably came from nothing! Wow that feels pretty nice to tell God to shove off.

Uhh... I believe in God and accept evolution, stop trying to make this a religious issue, its a scientific issue.  You're thinking of abiogenesis, which has nothing at all to do with evolution. Evolution explains the diverstiy of species, not the origin.

Isn't what the Bible says, that everything came from nothing, it just appeared?

Another false dichotomy. And a rather melodramatic one, at that.

"I just hope it's the right GOD." The majority of the world's population doesn't believe in the god that you do.

Christianity is actually a very young religion or way of life as I call it, but 2 billion people believe in Jesus. Christians Jews and Muslims all claim to believe in the GOD of Abraham. All 3 religons believe in Adam and Eve, Noah and the flood, and the Muslims actually believe that Jesus was a true prophet. However Muslims believe that the new testament has been written too many times even though we have about 40 THOUSAND of the original new testament copies which all have the same message.

Thats the point, there have been so many religions and gods that pretending that any of them are real above all others is foolish.  God has never been interpreted, humans try and fail to understand him/her/it and as a result the multitude of religions of the world claim true mandate. The fact that there are literally tens of thousands of deities all throughout history, with 99% of them not worshipped anymore is evidence of that.  970,921,642 of the earths population is hindu, does that make them right? Probably not, since just because people believe something, that doesn't make it true.

I've always believed in god, here's a good sampling of my belief:
 
"In contrast to the ideas of God endorsed and promoted by the various "revealed" religions, ranging anywhere from killing babies in the Old Testament to suggesting the practice of "turning the other cheek" in the New Testament, Deism offers a very simple non-dogmatic concept of God: an eternal entity whose power is equal to his/her will.

With the quality of being eternal, the entity of God obviously would have no beginning or end. Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity predicted places in the universe void of time, so the idea of eternalness is not unreasonable. As humanity learns more about science and the universe, our concepts of the Creator will correspondingly grow. This is the only way we can learn more about God: through the honest study of the Creator's creation, not through contradictory books written by men but claiming inspiration and revelation from God."

Unlike some, i use the reason that god gave me to unearth natural explanations for the diversity of life.

The problem is Joe, is that the Bible is the only religious book with history, prophecy, science and archeaology to back it up. Diesm sounds OK, but when we just decide that GOD is who we want him to be, then that is what The GOD of the Bible calls idolatry (worshipping another god besides the creator). How about we make a deal. I've read the book of mormon the quran and many new age books. I'm well studied in new ageism, but I've never studied Darwin's 'Origens of Species.' In Christianity we are still allowed to study other books. So how about I'll do a critical study on Darwin's book and you do a critical study on the Bible all the way through verse by verse like one doing a research paper, studying both sides. I admit that much of the Bible is based on faith, but so much of it has withstood scientific scrutiny that I believe the GOD of the Bible is the creator and Jesus means what he says in the new testament.

What history or archaeology backs up the Bible?
 
There is obviously no evidence that Eden is guarded by an angel with a flaming sword. There is no evidence of a world wide flood. There is no evidence of the Tower of Babel. There is no evidence that Israelites were in Egypt. I could go on but you get the idea.
