skinsfan51 Posted February 9, 2009 Share Posted February 9, 2009 "The problem with man is not the lack of evidence, but the suppression of it." -Ravi Zacharias Academic Freedom Day: On Charles Darwin's 200th birthday (February 12, 2009), students everywhere can speak out against censorship and stand up for free speech by defending the right to debate the evidence for and against evolution. Let's make "Darwin Day" 2009 Academic Freedom Day! http://www.academicfreedomday.com/ What's This All About? On Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday (February 12th, 2009), students everywhere can speak out against censorship and stand up for free speech by defending the right to debate the evidence for and against evolution. In 2009, let’s make "Darwin Day" Academic Freedom Day! Across the country academic freedom on evolution is being trampled every day. Scientific research challenging Darwinism is thwarted. Teachers trying to discuss these challenges with their students are censored. Even students are subject to harassment and prejudice for expressing views that are skeptical of Darwinism. Scientists, educators, students need your help to protect their academic freedom rights. The year 2009 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species. As you can imagine, Darwinists have a full year of celebrations planned, and February 12th—Darwin’s birthday—is likely to be the high-water mark for most of those celebrations. We hope you’ll have celebrations of your own, celebrations that will help to promote academic freedom in line with the words of Darwin himself: "A fair result can be obtained only by fully stating and balancing the facts and arguments on both sides of each question." Please join us in celebrating Academic Freedom Day, February 12th, 2009. We want student groups and clubs to organize simple Academic Freedom Day events, on or about February 12th. These events can be as simple as having a table on campus where people can sign the Academic Freedom Petition and find out more about academic freedom on evolution. Or, the events can be more elaborate including screening Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, or Icons of Evolution, on campus.
