Yesterday, February 12th, 2012, would have been the 203rd birthday of Charles Darwin. The unofficial holiday, commemorated as International Darwin Day, made me think about ways in which we could and should celebrate Darwin's accomplishments and the importance of his work on our everyday lives.
Below are some of my suggestions for "celebrating" Darwin's birthday and the Theory of Evolution.
1.) Re-familiarize (or familiarize) yourself with Darwin's writings via the Complete Works of Charles Darwin On-Line. This resource allows you to not only explore Darwin's writings, but also different editions of his books.
6.) Watch Inherit the Wind; a re-creation of the Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925 in which a high school teacher was taken to trial for teaching evolution in the classroom.
