We are a group of people interested in the exploration and expansion of science, rationality, and evidence-based thinking. Why?


Darwin Day is February 12, the anniversary of the birthday of Charles Darwin.

In the news

We celebrate Darwin Day because we have to, because an idea which is good and true needs our help to succeed and survive. Good ideas must give us an advantage in the real world, to help us live longer and better, and reproduce to live beyond us and our limited lifetimes. Selfishness and greed, twisted and perverted ideologies and worldviews, reliance on superstition and supernatural powers as a means to exploit and control our fellow mankind-these ideas can and do confer reproductive advantages. For reason, logic, and truth to survive, we have to get out and support them, popularize them, propagate them. They’ll only survive if we who love and cherish them live better and more successfully.
