Bringing Religion and Science together on Evolution Weekend

This weekend, Feb 11-13 2011 is the sixth annual Evolution Weekend. The event is sponsored by The Clergy Letter Project, an organization of more than 14,000 clergy members and evolution scientists that aims to find common ground between science and religion. 

Participants span a wide range of different christian denominations, Jews and Muslims; different ethnicities; Males and females; old and young; conservatives and liberals.

Being celebrated on the weekend closest to the birth of Charles Darwin (Feb. 12, 1809), Evolution Weekend participants aim to demonstrate that the modern theory of evolution and modern religious faith are fully compatible.
