Tell the House to Recognize Darwin Day!
Last week, Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) introduced a resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives “expressing support for the designation of February 12, 2014, as Darwin Day, and recognizing the importance of science in the betterment of humanity.”
In addition, H. Res. 467:
· 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.”
To show members of the House that Americans strongly support the role of scientific evidence in policymaking, investment in science education, and improvements to scientific literacy, the Center for Inquiry strongly urges you to contact your Representative and tell him or her to co-sponsor or support this resolution.
