Sempre più spesso politici, religiosi, filosofi e liberi pensatori “attaccano” la figura e il pensiero di Charles Darwin, travisando le sue teorie o applicandole ad… Find out more »

Darwin’s Influence on Religion @ Ethical Culture Society of Westchester

February 14 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 am
Ethical Culture Society,
7 Saxon Wood Rd, White Plains, NY 10801 United States
The relationship between Darwinian evolution and religion is a famously contentious, even hostile one. However, this popular model does not truly get to the heart of the evolution-religion issue. Today we have a well-developed scientific account of religion that sees belief in God arising naturally from mental tools that evolved to serve the survival needs of our earliest ancestors. This poses a much greater challenge for religion than simply having to re-interpret Genesis. This challenge, however, does not negate religion,… Find out more »

Event Resources

Need help with your event?

We have some ideas! And check back for updates: we’ll be adding suggestions, free webinars, and additional resources very soon.

Ideas for your Local Event

Acts of Kindness

Charles Darwin gave an enormous gift to humanity through his life and scientific work. Today, people of conscience everywhere can magnify that gift by organizing a group charity day. Engaging in community outreach to improve human well-being is a wonderful way to celebrate science and humanity!

Birthday Party!

Celebrate the birthday of a man whose intellectual bravery, perpetual curiosity, and hunger for truth continues to inspire millions of people all over the world. Everyone likes birthday cake, punch, and other party goodies—and celebrations like this go a long way in fostering a sense of community.

Family Dance Party!

Family-friendly dance parties are especially fun because no one gets a crowd moving like little kids who aren’t afraid of looking silly! Dress as a member of the animal kingdom, and show off those dance moves. Awards can be given for best costume, worst costume, best dance moves, etc.

Darwin Discourse

Invite guest speakers to discuss the importance of intellectual bravery, perpetual curiosity, and hunger for truth. Topics might come from a wide range of fields including: science, ethics, literature, technology, art, or politics. Speakers can come from just about anywhere, including your local freethought community; a nearby University; or a speakers’ bureau.

Discovery Day

What better way to honor Charles Darwin than to study natural history? Organize an outing to a Museum of Natural History or utilize some of the video resources above to promote scientific knowledge.
