Happy 200th birthday, Charles Darwin! Although his theory of evolution has been around for 150 years now, there are still quite a few people who don't believe it--63 percent, to be exact. According to an August 2006 survey by the Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion & Public Life and the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, 63 percent of Americans say they believe humans and other animals have either always existed in their present form or have evolved over time under the guidance of a supreme being. Either way, let's have a little fun with evolution.

The Open University Web site has a cool Web app that lets you alter a photo of yourself to see what you would look like had you been born at an earlier stage of man's development. Devolve Me lets you try out our different evolutionary stages, from 3.7 million years ago to 500,000 years ago: Simply upload a photo of yourself and move the slider to see what you'd look during the transition. You can then send your monkey-you to friends and family.

It's pretty interesting to see what your very distant ancestors might have looked like.
