I celebrated Darwin Day by going to rehearsal for Inherit the Wind.  I'm playing the dude on trial.  I also teach science in real life, so it's not much of a stretch.

Mostly I sit at the defense desk and react to things.

Our department celebrated a couple of days ago because (I think) that's when our speaker could make it. All the labs set up a show and tell that was open to the public, then we had an awesome talk on the evolution of birds, and then we all ate birthday cake. Incredibly nerdy fun was had by all! We actually did have some children and other members of the public show up, so it worked as nice outreach.

I was a member of teacher's association a while back, and we had Kenneth Miller give a talk on creationism versus evolution on Darwin Day.  Really good talk.

Sadly, I wasn't specifically teaching evolution at my school today but did manage to slip in a mention in my classes.

/Happy birthday Chuck

Like Hitler, Darwin totally claims the surname all for himself and for all times.

I also Godwined my post.

Happy D-day, epic beard man.

Although Darwin is one of the most important scientist in history, equal to Newton and Maxwell,  I don't think this makes him a hero. His theories were better accepted in England during his lifetime than they are today in the United State.

The only thing I found where he might have acted heroically is the following from wikipedia: "An expanse of water adjoining the Beagle Channel was named Darwin Sound by Robert FitzRoy after Darwin's prompt action, along with two or three of the men, saved them from being marooned on a nearby shore when a collapsing glacier caused a large wave that would have swept away their boats ".

Fark needs a tag for people who have distinguished themselves.

talkertopc: Although Darwin is one of the most important scientist in history, equal to Newton and Maxwell,  I don't think this makes him a hero. His theories were better accepted in England during his lifetime than they are today in the United State.


So, you're suggesting that someone who had the courage to stand up to "big God" with "big No that shiat doesn't work that way, because I've studied it and look this is how it actually works" isn't a Hero?

Is Galileo not a Hero then either?

If being a Hero isn't standing up to something that is wrong, when you have proof that there is a better way, then Jesus isn't a Hero either. While I'm not a Christian, and I'm not sure Jesus was a real person, I still think Jesus was the Hero of the New Testament.

What makes a hero in your mind?

Thanks, subby.

That was a nice spoken word performance, but it wasn't rap.

The Church of England did not react to Darwin's theories it the way the Catholic Church reacted to Galileo's theories. The theory of evolution does have heroes, one them being John Thomas Scopes.
