Tomorrow is ‘Darwin Day’
Darwin Day is a global celebration of science and reason held on or around Feb. 12, the birthday anniversary of evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin. Charles Darwin was born in 1809 and first published his ‘On the Origin of Species’ on November 24, 1859
Darwin’s book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution.
Today the Theory of Evolution still stands very strong…despite all the lying rhetoric constantly thrown at it by religious creationist types.
