Delicious Irony of the Day

When reading about Charles Darwin, I came across this gem:

Following graduation from Cambridge in 1831 with a degree in theology...
Wait, Darwin got his degree in theology? How come I didn't know that before?

Then I realized why. Atheists like to hold up Darwin as a patron saint, and it doesn't do them much good to point out he got a degree in theology. Likewise, the religious conservatives choose to demonize Darwin, and it doesn't do them any good to point out what his degree was in either. So it is up to Fat Knowledge to deliver you this tasty bit of irony.
