Darwin Day Report 2013

On Tuesday, 12th February 2013 we hosted

a Darwin Day Celebration BBQ at the Unitarian Church Hall in East Melbourne.

Darwin Day 2013 was very successful with over 70 people attending.  Everyone enjoyed a BBQ dinner, drinks and lively conversation.  Many also stayed for the Atheist Society lecture on Evolution.

Sir Charles Darwin is a scientist of significance on the world stage.  His work developing the theory of evolution has given us more reason to understand how we, and indeed how all life on earth came to be – without the need for a supernatural God.  Evolution is the basis for modern medicine.  For this reason we like to honour Darwin’s work and celebrate on his birthday every year.

Next year we plan to arrange a similar celebration.  So keep an eye out for our Bulletin early next year for all the details.

IMG_1643Thanks everyone for helping to organise  and come along to Darwin Day 2013 – it was a great day – and looking forward to seeing you all again next year!
