Darwin Day and Worms
Dude Boy, Mane and I went to Aunt Pee's and Charlie Dog's for Darwin Day this year. The gummi worms on the cake represent Darwin's last work . . . The Formation of Vegetable Mould Through the Action of Worms With Observations on Their Habits. Dr. J and Dude Boy created the cake while I was out bushwhacking in the woods looking for arches in the Red River Gorge. Charlie Dog and I also went to see Dr. Eugenie Scott give a talk entitled Intelligent Design: Is It Science? Is It Valid? at University of Tennessee at Knoxville. They have one of the longest running Darwin Day celebrations in the U.S.
