Celebrate Charles Darwin’s Birthday in Rhode Island

There will be celebrations all over the place to mark Charles Darwin‘s 200th birthday.

But this one in Rhode Island (PDF) looks like it’ll be a blast.

It’s sponsored by Charlie’s Playhouse and it’ll take place in the city of Pawtucket (a mecca for any Family Guy fan) on February 15th.

What are you doing to celebrate the occasion of Darwin’s Bicentennial?

  • I’m wondering what the “Survival of the Fittest” ping-pong tourney will be like.

    Check out my latest post on the Synoptic Problem of the New Testament at asad123.wordpress.com. It’s about how Christianity is based on a tenuous foundation composed of four markedly different versions of events.

  • I’m on the board of the New Orleans Secular Humanists Association and we’re having a social evening on Darwin’s actual birthday, February 12th. We’re having a funny multi-choice evolution quiz in an attempt to educate the public, and of course we couldn’t resist the opportunity to poke fun at creationists. There’s prizes such as Darwin car ornaments, the Origins book, and a British £10 note with Darwin on the back. It’s in a bar called the Monkey Hill. (No Scopes trial connection at all.) Check out http://www.darwinday.org/events/listing.php?id=12773 and come on down and have some fun. Not too much fun though because god may send another hurricane.

    Guess what? I’ll only be seeing Tim bloody Minchin at the De Montford Hall, Leicester, UK!!! How ace is that??!!!

  • I suppose that could be fun . . . if one could only prove he existed. . .

    Well, since it is right after Valentine’s day, I’ll try to combine celebrations and convince the missus to give natural selection some more fodder.

    It’s a fairly academic experience for us, but still and all. If there’s anything worth celebrating, it’s the process that brought us to bear on nature in the first place.

  • I’m gonna drive over there, considering it’ll take me about 5 minutes. My 3-year-old will get a kick out of it. He’ll be wearing the t-shirt that says “98% Chimpanzee”.
