Happy Birthday Charles Darwin
Charles Darwin would have been 197 years old today. Growing up, I only knew that Abe Lincoln's birthday was on Febuary 12th. Today there are Darwin celebrations all over the world, particularly at universities.
Polls show that many Americans don't believe in evolution. It appears that they didn't have much of a science education and didn't get to go to the Museum of Natural History on school trips.
Live Science has a great section on evolution and Darwin. Lots of stories, explanations and scientific theory here for you guys who are snowbound this weekend.
PZMyers at Pharyngula has a good angry post about how an evangelist boob destroys young minds with his anti-science spews and disinformation.
Simply Left Behind (Actor212) has a great post on the Evolution of Intelligent Design.
