Written by Duncan Crary

This Feb. 12 marksrepparttar 196th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth!

The day has special significance for America's nearly 30 million nonreligious people. Inrepparttar 127598 humanist community, Feb. 12 is "Darwin Day."

"Darwin has become an all-purpose icon for humanists, who champion reason and science while rejecting superstition and dogma," said Matt Cherry, executive director ofrepparttar 127599 Institute for Humanist Studies in Albany, N.Y. "Darwin isrepparttar 127600 definitive rebuff to fundamentalism."

In 2004, a Gallup poll found that only one-third of Americans believe Darwin's 19th century theory of evolution is a credible scientific theory. The same poll found that 45 percent of Americans believe God created humans in their present form roughly 10,000 years ago.

Massimo Pigliucci, Ph.D., a professor of evolutionary biology at SUNY-Stony Brook and author ofrepparttar 127601 Web column "Rationally Speaking", is shocked by how few Americans have a basic understanding of evolutionary biology andrepparttar 127602 nature of science in general.

"If people had a better understanding of both we wouldn't be embarrassed in front ofrepparttar 127603 rest ofrepparttar 127604 world by cases such asrepparttar 127605 one currently going on in Dover, Pa., where administrators are walking around local classrooms talking about 'intelligent design' and other nonsense," he said.

Pigliucci's course on "Evolution, Creationism andrepparttar 127606 Nature of Science" is available atrepparttar 127607 Continuum of Humanist Education,repparttar 127608 online school ofrepparttar 127609 Institute for Humanist Studies.
