bullet Ed Babinski has a web site on Creation vs. Evolution at: http://edwardtbabinski.us/ He converted from a young-earth creationist and Evangelical Christian to an Agnostic and supporter of evolution.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution_Sunday

bullet Darwin Day Celebration (DDC) celebrated an international recognition of Darwin's 200th birthday on 2009-FEB-12. By coincidence, Abraham Lincoln was born on the same day. DDC was also the 150th anniversary of the publication of his most famous book "On the Origin of Species." The DDC website states:

"The objective of Darwin Day Celebration is to encourage existing institutions worldwide, such as municipalities, public and private schools, colleges and universities, libraries, museums, churches, private organizations and individuals to celebrate Science and Humanity every year, on, or near, February 12, Darwin's birthday!"
