Happy Darwin Day!

Today is the anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birthday.

He published his Origin of Species in 1858. Since then, the explanation of evolution has been expanded and refined in ways that he never dreamed–after all, he went to his grave never hearing of Gregor Mendel’s laws of inheritance.

here are a few links to Darwin Day celebrations around the world:
The Evolution of a Compromise: “The Rev. Richard E. Edwards will not mince words in his sermon today about God and Charles Darwin, the 19th century naturalist whose theory of evolution rocked the world. ‘I want to reaffirm the compatibility of Biblical tradition and modern science,’ said Edwards, pastor of Stony Brook Community Church, a small, Methodist congregation that draws members from the nearby university and medical center. ‘This is a community where science counts, and where folks really need to hear that.'”
