What a horrible day to have a celebration of knowledge here in Kansas. It's cloudly, drizzly, and rather cold. But at least temperatures are above freezing for a change.
Meanwhile, the events are still being held across the globe tonight. Here at KU, KUSFS is helping to host the event including a showing of "Flock of Dodos". I'm still debating whether or not I feel like walking across the campus in this weather when I have two upcoming tests this week.
But as is usual, creationists completely miss the point of the event. They claim that it's an atheist celebration akin to worship. Yet, as always, the creationists conveniently overlook the fact that theists of all stripes celebrate this holiday as well, and one of the major places Darwin's legacy is being celebrated is in the churches!
Yesterday, on Evolution Sunday, over 600 churches (mostly in the US but some elsewhere) reminded us that it's not just atheists that support good science. So kudos to those Churches and all other theists that are stepping up to counter the shrill voices of the seriously deluded.
