Donate to the Charles Darwin Foundation

If you’re in the sciency mood on Giving Tuesday, here’s a good cause: The Charles Darwin Foundation. I suspect they’d be glad to hear from you any day, though. The center may close down due to lack of funds (details). Please spread the word, especially to evolved millionaires.

Charles Darwin is still a stand-up guy

If you’re planning on having a birthday party for Charles Darwin on February 12th (same day as Lincoln!), I’d like to encourage you to make a life-size cut-out of the guy.  Your guests can pose with him and then get high-quality photographs to use for their Facebook and Google+ profile images.  It would be fun, of course, but it would also help promote acceptance of evolution and reality through the subtle peer pressure of social media.

If you’re interested, I can set you up with the image file (free!), so all you have to do is print him up, glue him onto poster board, and then cut out him out.  If you do it carefully, you’ll have a portable Charles Darwin that you can proudly take to any geeky event. Darwin was painted by Carl Buell, illustrator extraordinaire. Interested?  Here are the details.
