Evolution Day – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
We’ve had a mention in Wikipedia, the online encyclopaedia written by volunteers around the world. If you follow the link below and click on the little  reference, you’ll be brought back here to my Evolution Day Thought for the Day on 24 November 2006.
Evolution Day is the anniversary of the first publication of The Origin of Species on November 24, 1859.  Also celebrated is Darwin Day which commemorates the birthday of Charles Darwin who established the theory of natural selection which provided for a biological process behind evolution.
The year 2009 will mark the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin as well as the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth.
