UW's SSU Celebrates Birthday of Evolution Champ

Note to time and date: The festivities will commence at 4 p.m. on Feb. 12. in Gowen Hall room 301 on the campus of the University of Washington. At 6 p.m. the Darwin Fish Fry will be at McMahon 8 (in McMahon hall) - a special Darwin-Day menu, including Darwin Fish, and potentially including primordial stew, Darwin's Finches (chicken), among other fun dishes.

Seattle, WA: This Feb. 12 is the 199th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth.

We will be celebrating by holding a free screening of youtube's "Made Easy" series, a collection of easy to understand videos explaining the origin of the universe, species and man, provided generously by PotHoler54. There will be a follow-up Q&A regarding Darwin, Evolution, and the Secular Student Alliance. Northwest Fish & Chips will also be generously hosting the follow-up Darwin Fish Fry.

"There is a load of misinformation regarding Mr. Darwin and his dangerous idea. Today, we celebrate and honor the man without the myth by studying the facts of his theory and its implications," Secular Student Union officer Michael Amini said.
