leave a comment »

IYA2009yoe2009There is a battle brewing.  On one side is Astronomy; on the other is Evolution.  This is the 400th anniversary when Galileo first used his telescope to examine the night sky.  It is also the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the origin of species. All of these events have coincided in 2009 to make a battle between the Year of Astronomy and the Year of Evolution.  So who will win out in this battle of “year of”s?  Everyone, of course!
