Vancouver, Canada, Darwin Day Proclamation

    I love the idea of Darwin Day! This is actually the first time I’ve read about it. I’ll try to promote it in the Melbourne, FL (USA) area. I just signed a petition to be sent to our local representative to introduce a bill to promote the idea.

    Here’s one thing Darwin got right, as he stated in the “Introduction” to his Origin of Species: “For I am well aware that scarcely a single point is discussed in this volume on which facts cannot be adduced, often apparently leading to conclusions directly opposite to those at which I have arrived. A fair result can be obtained only by fully stating and balancing the facts and arguments on both sides of each question; and this is here impossible.” Would that Darwin’s current fans could be that fair-minded! (I was born in Vancouver in 1950, and became an atheist in 1966, but deserted Darwinism in 1973.)

    Hi Folks: Regarding the ‘International Darwin Day’ Proclamation in Vancouver, B.C., ……Just noticed that Richard’s comment re-posted below, was not allowed on your hallowed blog. Can it be that your theory of evolution is too fragile to withstand any critical analysis? Lets try this again, and see if you have academic integrity.

    So cool. February Fool’s Festival would make a great name for it.
