There has just been a national petition started, supporting a proposal to make Charles Darwin’s birthday (12th February) a UK Bank Holiday. Well yes, let’s celebrate the great man — and just possibly send a signal marking some opposition to the noisy fringe of know-nothing, anti-science, religious loonies.
Why not (1) spend just a moment to sign the petition at http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/Darwins-day/ (if you are a British citizen or resident)? (2) Warmly encourage/nag a couple of friends to sign too. And then (3) spread the word to other groups/e-lists that you belong to — e.g. by distributing the text of this post.
(For here, perhaps, is a meme worth propagating!)
