The Palouse Coalition of Reason has just formed in Idaho and they’re celebrating their arrival by bringing in some heavy hitters to speak in honor of Charles Darwin — and announcing it on a new billboard:
The Darwin on the Palouse events herald not only Charles Darwin’s 203rd birthday on February 12 but the 153rd anniversary of the first publication of “Origin of Species” on November 24.
“We have teamed up with the new Palouse Coalition of Reason to bring four of the nation’s preeminent speakers on science and philosophy to middle America,” said Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association. “We also wish to mark the 203rd birthday of Charles Darwin in a big way, celebrating his continuing contribution to humanity, science and rational thought.”
The events are free to the public!
