Coming Soon: Blog for Darwin

Charles Darwin is turning 200 on February 12th, 2009. His bicentennial is in ten days, and to celebrate his birthday, I will be participating in the online blog carnival - Blog for Darwin.

The party will take place from Feb. 12 to Feb. 15th, with bloggers, scientists, artists and educators celebrating a giant of science. Check out the Blog for Darwin site for more information and to participate!

My contribution to the fun will be something inspired by my talented artist blog friend Glendon - his painting of Darwin "Darwin Took Steps." A portrait of the naturalist, but as a younger man. Now I have only just begun, and the final result might be something else (isn't Art amazing?) but it will be my tribute to the man!

That's what I heard, Peter. I think I'm going to contribute to Darwin in my own way. I think I'm going to try for a series of posts about Darwin and/or anything Evolution related...wait a sec..I already do that on my blog.

It will be great to see your piece, Peter.

I think we need more holidays based on the accomplishments of scientific inquiry.

Join in the celebrations, Raptor!

Glendon: Yeah, I agree. When is Hawkin's Day?
