Born on February 12, 1809, Charles Darwin revolutionized the understanding of plant, animal, and human origins during his lifetime, and has had major, lasting impact on the field of biology ever since. Some 150 years after the release of his On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, Center for Inquiry-Austin gathers every February to celebrate Darwin’s birthday. Who better than Charles Darwin to exemplify the principles of scientific inquiry, for which CFI stands? He devoted his life to the search for truth—examining, gathering, and analyzing enormous amounts of data on his trips around the world, formulating hypotheses about his findings, and undertaking rigorous experimentation to test his hypotheses.

On Saturday, February 8, 2015 from noon to 5pm, the Center for Inquiry-Austin presented a FREE event to celebrate the 206th anniversary of Darwin’s birth.
