    2019 Darwin Day Resolutions Have Been Filed in Both the House and Senate


    "For the past several years, a member of Congress has introduced a resolution in the House to honor Charles Darwin on his birthday. Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) did it in 2011, Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) did it in 2013 and 2014, and Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) has done it in the years since. Himes just did it again today, introducing the resolution, officially known as House Resolution 123. It designates “February 12, 2019, as ‘Darwin Day’ and [recognizes] the importance of science in the betterment of humanity.” The bill had a companion in the Senate, with Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) sponsoring S. Res. 63, which is not publicly available yet. (He has sponsored similar resolutions since 2015.)

    The American Humanist Association appreciates the nod to science at a time when reason and common sense in government are hard to find. They’re calling on readers to contact their representatives to co-sponsor the resolutions. (I did. It took about one minute.)


    “Charles Darwin represents the power of science and reason to change our world and the way we view our place in the universe,” said Rep. Himes. “Overcoming the challenges we face — the destruction of our environment, the need for renewable energy, and global population growth — will require the best humanity has to offer. We must inspire a new generation of Americans to enter the fields of science, technology, math and engineering. There is no nobler pursuit than acquiring an education in order to better the lot of humanity. There is no nobler title one can wear than “scientist.”

    “I am proud to champion and celebrate Charles Darwin and the countless scientists and explorers who’ve built on his remarkable discoveries and achievements,” said Sen. Blumenthal. “Darwin Day recognizes Darwin’s invaluable contributions, which fundamentally changed the field of natural science and dramatically advanced our understanding of the world. Today, we reflect and remember that the dogged pursuit of science and human knowledge are profoundly important to the progress of humankind and the preservation of our planet.”

    “While we take care not to deify our heroes of the past, and we take time to recognize their flaws, we are proud to continue recognizing the work of famed scientist Charles Darwin,” notes American Humanist Association Executive Director Roy Speckhardt. “Humanism and reason go hand in hand, as we use scientific advancements to protect nature’s integrity, diversity, and beauty, and take responsibility for our lives and the kind of world in which we live.”

    My question is this, in all that you posted above so here's what you posted above

    [ "For the past several years, a member of Congress has introduced a resolution in the House to honor Charles Darwin on his birthday. Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) did it in 2011, Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) did it in 2013 and 2014, and Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) has done it in the years since. Himes just did it again today, introducing the resolution, officially known as House Resolution 123. It designates “February 12, 2019, as ‘Darwin Day’ and [recognizes] the importance of science in the betterment of humanity.” The bill had a companion in the Senate, with Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) sponsoring S. Res. 63, which is not publicly available yet. (He has sponsored similar resolutions since 2015.]

    How is it in all that is being said above not one of them is a Republican how is that and why is that, do you have any clue or idea Why that is.
    That not one being a Republican ?

    Democrats are those in the most part do not believe in Creation. That's why there are all democrats in supporting Charles Darwin theory of Evolution.

    Anything that God is against, Democrats supports, anything Democrats supports, God is against.

    Where as Republicans believe in Creation, That's why there are no Republicans in the supporting Charles Darwin theory of Evolution.

    As it doesn't take much to figure that out, seeing how they are all democrats in the above statement that you posted.

    Therefore for any Christian that is a Christian will not have no part of Democrats, seeing how everything Democrats support, God stands against.
    So if a Christian claims to be a democrat, then God stands against them.

    Yes - Republicans are anti-science and also need to keep their base of zealots happy.
    There are republicans that accept modern science.
    Sounds cool.
    So this God that loves Republicans- does he stand for serial adulterers like Trump and Gingrich and Limbaugh? Does this God stand for hypocrites and money-grubbers? Does this God stand for pro-abortion-when-it-suits-him 'family values' liars like Scott DesJarlais?

    Right.

    I consider all conservative Christians to be fake since they ignore parts of the bible that does not jive with their right-wing hatred.

    Fix your tags.

    But cool how you admit Jehovah is rather arbitrary in his hatred.

    Funny how those same republicans also realise that they need to hire "evolutionists" who will tell them where they can go to drill for oil.

    Such republicans are YECs until money is involved.

    According to Richard Dawkins evolution leads to Atheism. Atheism is a religion and so evolution should be banned in every school due to separation of church and state.....

    Considering the remark, one without confirmation, it doesn't deserve anything better.

    If you really care, just show us where Richard Dawkins says evolution leads to Atheism.

    Tbh... as if it matters what Richard Dawkins thinks about that...

    Another biologist thinks it leads to even more appreciation of the power of God.

    Like... who cares.
