Happy Darwin Day all.
What is Darwin Day?
From the official Darwin Day Celebration website:
Darwin Day is an international celebration of science and humanity held on or around February 12, the day that Charles Darwin was born on in 1809. Specifically, it celebrates the discoveries and life of Charles Darwin — the man who first described biological evolution via natural selection with scientific rigor. More generally, Darwin Day expresses gratitude for the enormous benefits that scientific knowledge, acquired through human curiosity and ingenuity, has contributed to the advancement of humanity.
Break out the Bubbly and party hats, cheers to all the other bloggers out there celebrating today.
Apart from this notification I won’t be posting anything else today, I’m busy working on my submission to the ABS re the religion question in Census 2011. See post Christianity – a declining population. I’ll post a copy of my submission once it’s done.
Please let me know if you find any good Darwin Day blogs.
