This Thursday is the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth (and later this year is the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species).  There are Darwin Day events going on all across the world, to ‘Celebrate Darwin, Science and Humanity and come together as one human family in appreciation of verifiable knowledge that has been acquired solely through human curiosity and ingenuity’.  Okay, that’s a bit wordy, but those are the Darwin Day website’s words, not mine.

Here in Brisvegas, the Queensland Skeptics are showing the evolution vs intelligent design documentary Flock of Dodos at the Irish Club in the city on the 12th at 19:00.  That’s a bit late for our tiny mammal, so Atomique and I are going to miss out – but that’s a small price to pay for taking part personally in the evolutionary process.
