AKA: Hold my beer and watch this.

Usage: "He's dead Jim, he Darwined himself" Or. "Darwin wasn't looking at that guy, somehow he lived."

The use of Darwin in this manner it usually indicates allowing natural selection to deselect the person or persons indicated, because of their own less than smart actions. Someone roof surfing a car that dies is Darwined. Someone killed in spite of obeying traffic laws is not. Darwin is being evoked as the personification of natural selection. An informal use apparently still popular among Humans in the 25th century.


Charles Robert Darwin, FRS (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882) was an English naturalist and geologist, best known for his contributions to evolutionary theory. He theorized that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors, and in The Origin of Species introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.

Science and evolutionary theory have moved beyond this model as the mechanisms are more understood. Darwin remains the Father of Evolution.
