Next Thursday is Darwin Day, the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth. People around the world will be celebrating in various ways all month. For instance, at Caltech, the editor-in-chief and founding publisher of Skeptic Magazine Michael Shermer will be giving a lecture on the 22nd. If you're interested in finding an event near you, check out www.darwinday.org. What will I be doing? Mmm, I'll probably start the day by updating myself on who did a service to humanity by removing themselves from the gene pool in 2008 (a.k.a. the recent Darwin Award recipients).
A bit more evolution humor for you:
