Darwin Day Resolution Introduced In Congress By Rush Holt

 

Rep. Rush Holt (D-N.J.) is looking to give British naturalist Charles Darwin, the father of evolutionary theory, an extra-special birthday this year.

Holt, a “Jeopardy!” whiz with a doctoral degree in physics, introduced a resolution this week seeking to commemorate Feb. 12, 2013 — the 204th anniversary of Darwin’s birth — as “Darwin Day.”
