Evolution Weekend 2009 marked the fourth consecutive year in which Darwin's birthday has been observed by congregations to recognize that religion and science, two fields of critical importance to humans, should be seen as complementary rather than confrontational. Kearney Unitarian,  St. Martha's Episcopal  in Papillion, and both Augustana Lutheran and Countryside Community churches in Omaha were among more than 1000 congregations from across the country and around the world to participate.  A partial list of various local events, some occuring later in 2009, is available by clicking here.  An international registry of events is also available by clicking here(Neither the map directory search nor the event archive are reliable, but finding the phrase (without quotations marks) "/NE"will locate all registered Darwin Day 2009 events in Nebraska (and alas, also those in Nevada, New Jersey, and any other state beginning with Ne).
