This is just cute.
Veronica Chenik Gilmore‘s family is hosting a Darwin Day celebration in a couple of weeks that involves a scavenger hunt at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. (I’m very jealous that I can’t be a part of this.)
But no celebration of Darwin’s life is complete without some long white beards for everyone, so they went ahead and created their own. Even the dog got in on the action:
I know there are people out there who will claim this is evidence that atheism is like a religion where we worship Darwin. It’s nothing like that. It’s just a nice way to celebrate the achievements of someone whose big idea revolutionized how we see the world.
And if you or your kids make a beard, the Gilmores would love to see and share your pictures.
