Darwin Gets Birthday Treat With Reading Of Work

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A skeptics organization will be celebrating the 197th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, the founder of the Theory of Evolution, by taking a page out of his book – literally.

The Center for Inquiry-West, which promotes science and reasoning, will honor Darwin with a reading of the evolutionist’s work The Origin of Species.

The reading will begin at midnight on Saturday (Feb. 11) and is expected to end sometime Sunday (Feb. 12) between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m., and will be read by comedians and comic writers.

Former M.A.S.H. writer Alan Katz, who will be reading a portion of the book jokes he volunteered because “the food is free and bad.”

Katz is very vocal on where he stands in the evolution vs. creationism debate. He says, “Anti-Darwin seems to be anti- smart, anti-logic.”

But still, Katz says when his faithful friends get in a tizzy because they can’t reconcile evolution and creationism, he says he tells them, “Let’s say God created evolution.”
