    It was so informative, and lively, despite the small group. Bill had lots of great material, and Colleen's props were a real hit. All in all a great way to celebrate Darwin Day 2012.

    This was our first meetup in our new venue, Mullica Hill Library. We celebrated Darwin Day early (couldn't wait till[masked]) with a birthday cake and discussion about Darwin's life, evolution and the way it is being taught in our schools. Everyone participated in the lively remarks and some even brought favorite Darwin books and materials to share. Please sign up for that event asap, thanks!

    Darwin applied his insight to the growing awareness of deep time and did away with the need for a divine creator.
    We will have a cake to celebrate Darwin Day. See you at the meeting.

    Darwin discovered, after much research, evidence and thought, what causes the process of species die-off and renewal. He never used the phrase "survival of the fittest" but discovered how nature, both internal and environmental, selects those who have adapted to the local conditions of their environment.
    Of course he never knew about DNA and how mutations affect our genes. But he opened a new world for scientists to explore and a new tool to validate the evidence.

    We will have Darwin handout materials and Bill will give a talk about natural selection and the history of Darwin and evolution as it relates to Humanism. We will try to answer the question of where Charles Darwin fits among the top 100 most influential persons of all time.
    In the end Darwin was an shy agnostic but was a thorough scientist first and foremost. He did not event the word evolution or the concept of transmutation of species.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
