Happy (belated) Darwin Day!

I missed this, but Darwin Day falls on Feb 12. From

Darwin Day is a global celebration of science and reason held on or around Feb. 12, the birthday anniversary of evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin. This year marks the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth.

Growing up, I heard some religious leaders loudly proclaim that Christians shouldn't believe in evolution. Some folks - thankfully a minority - still do. They don't realize that a religion that refuses to engage with scientific scrutiny is a religion that is already dead.
