Representative Pete Stark just proposed H. Res 81 to Congress, expressing support for designation of February 12, 2011, as Darwin Day and recognizing the importance of science in the betterment of humanity. This resolution could not have come at a more important time. The New York Times recently reported that only 28 percent of biology teachers present evidence for evolution as recommended by the National Research Council, while 13 percent “explicitly advocate” creationism. Which is totally fucked up and breeding a nation of idiots! This is a holiday we can all get behind and celebrate science! As apposed to something as utterly stupid as National prayer day. So please go here http://action.americanhumanist.org/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=...  and let your rep. know that they should support this bill!!
