Faithful celebrate, defend DarwinAt first glance, I thought the idea was that there was an actual Church of Darwin, and that there was some congregation or communion of people who held faith in a 200-year-old naturalist. Or that even if there wasn't, the Star Tribune was suggesting that those who understand his work to hold truth were somehow holding Faith in him. That premise I rejected, somewhat angrily.
On Charles Darwin's 200th birthday, many Twin Cities believers went to church to support his theory of evolution.
Anyway, Happy Birthday to the following people:
my Aunt Ellen
Charles Van Doren
Joe Don Baker
Ehud Barak, Raymond Kurzweil, Michael Ironside, Maud Adams, Joanna Kerns, Arsenio Hall, John Michael Higgins, Ed Lover, Josh Brolin, Darren Aronovsky, Ajay Naidu, Christina Ricc... ah, screw it. Happy birthday to everybody.
