For Second Straight Year, Delaware Governor Issues Darwin Day Proclamation

Delaware Governor Jack Markell has once again issued a proclamation in honor of Darwin Day, recognize the accomplishments of Charles Darwin:


Whereas, Charles Darwin is recognized for the development of the Theory of Evolution; and 

Whereas, Darwin’s Theory of Evolution is the foundation of modern biology, an essential tool in understanding the development of life on earth; and 

Whereas, the anniversary of Darwin’s birthday is a time to reflect and celebrate the importance of his scientific achievements; and  

Whereas, the State of Delaware is proud of its commitment to scientific research;

Now, Therefore, I, Jack A. Markell, Governor

do hereby declare February 12th, 2016


to be “Charles Darwin Day” in the State of Delaware for all of his achievements in the field of science.

Fantastic! And so simple to do — all it took was a simple request.

Credit for making this particular proclamation happen goes to the Delaware Coalition of Reason.
