Happy Darwin Day! February 12, 2014

The nit-picker in me wants to point out that people do not evolve, populations do. Evolution occurs over generations, not over silent moments. But having said that, my initial reaction to the cartoon above, shared by P. Z. Myers, was to think “My Sunday school class would totally do that.”

Loren Crow wrote on Facebook: “I propose that we change the acronym YEC “young-earth creationism” to YECH “young earth creationist heresy.” This would clarify matters considerably, in addition to providing a truer and more memorable acronym.” What do you think? Is this a good idea?

Rev. Charles Allen has shared some thoughts and a paraphrase of John 1 in celebration of evolution.

Bill Nye’s words have been put to music to celebrate the joy of discovery:

And of course, that answers the question one young-earth creationist at the Nye-Ham debate asked about whether Bill Nye is being a positive influence on children.

Happy Darwin Day everyone!
