Celebrate "Darwin Day" in Australia

Petition published by karl kach on Jul 01, 2008

Target: Austrlian Parliament
Region: Australia

Petition Background (Preamble):

February 12 is the the birthday of Charles Darwin, and is already recognized the world over as Darwin Day. See supporting website:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darwin_Day.

In keeping with the recognized Christian (creationists) holidays of Christmas and Easter, I petition that in a secular society like Australia, we also recognize Darwin Day an an official public holiday, too.

Petition:

We the undersigned call on the Australia Federal Parliament to recognize Darwin Day, Feb 12, as an official public holiday.

Since Australia, as a secular society, already celebrates Christian creationists holidays of Christmas and Easter, it is only fair and just that we also celebrate the official evolutionist holiday of Charles Darwin's birthday.
