For Delaware residents, please contact Rep. Carney and let him know of your support for the Darwin Day resolution. For my part, the News Journal will publish a letter of mine on Darwin and the N.Y. Times may publish an oped on the subject. Dave

Support the Darwin Day Resolution: Contact Your Representative Now!
Dear Friend,
In honor of this year’s Darwin Day, the American Humanist Association proudly worked with Representative Rush Holt (NJ) to introduce a resolution today in the U.S. House of Representatives “expressing support for designation of February 12, 2013, as Darwin Day and recognizing the importance of science in the betterment of humanity.”
This Darwin Day resolution signifies that there are some members of Congress dedicated to promoting science and committed to scientific literacy among our youth.
The resolution: 
  • States that evolution “provides humanity with a logical and intellectually compelling explanation for the diversity of life on Earth”
  • Demands that the “advancement of science be protected from those unconcerned with the adverse impacts of global warming and climate change”
  • Confirms that the “teaching of creationism in some public schools compromises the scientific and academic integrity of the United States’ education systems
As you may already know, some members of Congress have been infamous as of late for making anti-science statements. We need humanists like you to stand up for science education and the increased funding of scientific research. 
The Darwin Day resolution is a step toward combating anti-science advocates committed to removing scientific values from public policy. I need your help in getting as many co-sponsors as we can for this important bill if we are to see Congress standing strong on science. 
Please take action now. Show Congress that voters care about science by contacting your Representative today and asking her or him to co-sponsor the Darwin Day resolution.
In the meantime, I hope you will visit http://secure.americanhumanist.org/page.redir?target=http%3a%2f%2fwww.darwinday.org&srcid=22608&srctid=1&erid=3443953&trid=9dd4a795-22af-4193-b6c3-9116efe75c53 to learn more about the Darwin Day resolution and join a Darwin Day event in your community. Thank you for standing up for science.
Sincerely,
Roy Speckhardt

P.S. The AHA is proud to work with allies like Rep. Holt—let’s help him get more co-sponsors for the Darwin Day resolution. Contact your Representative now and ask her or him to co-sponsor this important bill.
