200 years ago today, Feb 12th 1809, Charles Darwin was born. I celebrated by ringing the doorbell 200 times and running of the Discovery Institute, the creationist headquarters inexplicably based here in Seattle. How sad that when anti-evolutionists the world over go looking for cutting edge propaganda for “alternative-theories” to push on teachers they come to Seattle.
At least we can say that Lucy is in town… Actually if you really want to celebrate you should go see Lucy (the most famous of fossils), which is currently just a stones throw away from the Discoveroids over at the Pacific Science Center. Its $20 and the first time it has every left Ethiopia, I think its here through next month.
