Feed Your Brain: Darwin Day Celebration [No Host Event]

Darwin Day Celebration 

During previous years to celebrate Charles Darwin’s Feb. 12th birthday, CFI held a marathon reading of The Origin of Species that featured dozens of readers, including many from the academic, film, and artistic communities of Southern California; presented a staged reading of Steve Allen’s Meeting of Minds that included Darwin and performed by Hollywood actors; staged an original play featuring the Scopes and Dover trials; and featured authors, including Edward J. Larson, David Contosta, and Margaret Wertheim, discussing aspects of evolution.

Although CFI-LA is still finalizing the first of its two-part 2013 Darwin Day celebration, please plan to attend, and they will do their best to surprise you with an original, exciting celebration of the 204th birthday of the father of evolution!

COST: $8, Students $4; Free for Friends of the Center

      Darn it, we did miss it! I was kidding with my comment, but in all seriousness, I would love to see a Wallace Day, or at least a Darwin-Wallace Day.

    Great lecture by Craig Stanford and lots of great discussions with fellow skeptics. I was quite astounded by the dwindling numbers of the great apes though. I hope we don't fuck up and make them all extinct.

    Lame me... I was hoping to get the family to go with me, and it just wasn't happening. I'm going to do laundry instead. Happy birthday, Darwin!!
