How fitting is it that erev Tu B’Shvat falls on Charles Darwin’s birthday?

There’s a new move by churches to celebrate the day as a way of showing that faith and evolution aren’t mutually exclusive.

So as a religious Jew, the sister of a marine ecologist who did most of his dissertation research in the Galapagos and as a thinking, intelligent person, I wish you all: Happy Darwin Day!

(Or, of course, you can just get touched by his noodly appendage, but that’s another story.)
