My Year of Darwin: 8/1/2014 Darwin's advice - don't step in it

 Charles Darwin

"I rejoice that I have avoided controversies, and this I owe to Lyell, who many years ago, in reference to my geological works, strongly advised me never to get entangled in a controversy, as it rarely did any good and caused a miserable loss of time and temper." Charles Darwin, Autobiography

There is a certain temptation to comment in the Facebook world on evolution, climate change, fracking, etc. It is exhausting. Darwin has good advice but who would be there to correct the misinformation out there?
