Happy Darwin Day!

Today is the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth. I hope you can all find some appropriate way to celebrate. Some suggestions:

Watch Richard Dawkins’s “Growing Up in the Universe” with your children. Buy “The Genius of Charles Darwin” for yourself.

Watch any of the Stanford “Darwin’s Legacy” lectures I keep recommending.

Spend some time browsing Darwin’s writings or correspondence.

How about this podcast from Scientific American?

In London? Enjoy the “Big Idea Big Exhibition” at the Natural History Museum.

Check here for Darwin Day events in your neighbourhood.

Donate to the Charles Darwin Foundation.

Curl up with A. S. Byatt’s Angels and Insects or George Levine’s Darwin Loves You.

There is indeed a grandeur in this view of life.
