"U.S. Representative Pete Stark (D-CA, in collaboration with the AHA) has introduced legislation that would designate February 12, 2011 as “Darwin Day,” a celebration and recognition of “the importance of science in the betterment of humanity.”

The measure explicitly cites “the validity of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection,” and calls for “a global celebration of science and humanity intended to promote a common bond among all of Earth’s peoples.”"

[Blunderov] That would be really good - for a beginning. Then to replace religious holidays with further commemorations of prodigious human achievments. The steering of memetic dynamics by means of assimilating old ritual days into  new politics was not lost on the early church patriarchs or the USSR of yore. It works.

Xmas should be replaced by Darwin Day.

Good Friday becomes Faraday Friday and Easter Monday will instead be known as "Copenhagen Day" to commemorate the Copenhagen Interpretation. (I think it's really cool that it's not entirely certain upon which exact 'day' (or exactly where) the interpretation  sprang into existence.  Some say it happened on a train between Copenhagen and somewhere else but I digress.

Lent would be replaced by The Festival of The Enlightenment during which period penitents would couraged to eschew one cognitive dissonance of their own choosing.

This could be lotsa fun. Any further, as the bishop said to the actress, suggestions ?
