Celebrate the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birthday! Part of a world wide celebration, the Twin Cities’ version is at The Bell Museum of Natural History this Thursday night. Join in the fun with cake, drinks and presentations by U of M scientists and educators. They will present funny, outrageous and controversial rapid-fire, media-rich presentations about Darwin and evolution. From the big bang to the human genome, hear the newest research and controversy on evolution and Darwin.

We’re also very happy to say that we all live in a metro area that recognizes the importance of Darwin’s ideas. A big thanks to Minnesota Atheists for arranging the proclamations from both of the Twin Cities.

And finally, if all the local Darwin doesn’t satisfy your Darwin Day cravings, you can find much more at the Blog for Darwin blog swarm event.
