Happy Darwin Day!

Today is Charles Darwin's 199th birthday, observed as Darwin Day specifically in honor of "the man who first described biological evolution via natural selection with scientific rigor," and more generally in honor of "the enormous benefits that scientific knowledge, acquired through human curiosity and ingenuity, has contributed to the advancement of humanity."

Duncan Crary of the Institute for Humanist Studies heard from some journalists who aren't celebrating, one from Indiana. Well, the earth does kinda look flat out here...
