Darwin’s Birthday

Google Log for Darwin's Birthday (by StarbuckGuy)

Thank you, Google, for your lovely Darwin’s 200th Birthday logo!

Happy Birthday, Charlie!

Scientific American has posted a Darwin Day Special podcast:

Darwin Day Special: Bicentennial of the Birth of Charles Darwin

In part one of this special Darwin Day podcast, celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Darwin on February 12th, Richard Milner performs part of his one-man show about Darwin; Scientific American editor-in-chief John Rennie and Darwin descendant Matthew Chapman read from the Origin of Species; and Chapman talks about his book 40 Days and 40 Nights, about the Dover Intelligent Design trial, as well as about his efforts to get Presidential candidates to discuss science, a project called ScienceDebate.

If you’re of a singing persuasion, break out the guitar, banjo, autoharp, kazoo, or just plain voice (with a pint of brew to slake the thirst) and belt out The Ballad of Charlie Darwin.

  1. Ballad sung here too. Guitar. We need to put the two singings together and try it in stereo 🙂 Charlie — you da man!
