A tax-funded public statutory holiday? They do keep trying.
This is the fourth year that the Darwin Day Resolution has been introduced, according to the AHA.
“Charles Darwin’s discoveries gave humankind a new, revolutionary way of thinking about the natural world and our place in it,” Himes said in a statement. “Without Darwin’s contributions to science, philosophy and reason, our understanding of the world’s complexity and grandeur would be significantly diminished.”
One would think that the problem of racism in Darwinian theory would be a bigger issue than it is.
But then one would think wrong.
If there is one thing I have learned about progressive causes over the years, it is this: They are strictly hierarchical. You can, for example, be a racist if you believe in Darwinism.
If you do not believe in Darwinism, you can be accused of racism on evidence-free claims. In other words, Darwinism trumps non-racism.
So maybe those people will get their public stat after all.
Stock up on canned goods and road salt. It’ll be February 12, and the stores will be closed.
