A Darwin Day Resolution Has Been Introduced in the U.S. Senate December 18, 2015

A Darwin Day Resolution Has Been Introduced in the U.S. Senate

A couple of weeks after Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) introduced a resolution in the House recognizing Charles Darwin‘s birthday, Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) has just done the same in the Senate.

Senate Resolution 337 expresses “support for the designation of February 12, 2016, as ‘Darwin Day’ and recogniz[es] the importance of science in the betterment of humanity.”

The text isn’t live yet, but it’ll presumably be the same as what we saw in the House and what Blumenthal introduced in the Senate last year. (Because he did it then, too!)

Kudos to the Secular Coalition for America — and Connecticut — for making this happen:

“This resolution celebrates the intellectual bravery and scientific discovery that contribute to the well-being of all people,” said Kelly Damerow, the Interim Executive Director of the Secular Coalition for America. “Congressional recognition will help foster the scientific inquiry and natural curiosity that builds a brighter future for all mankind.”

No word yet on which Republicans will vote against this symbolic legislation.
