Evolution Sunday in the Church of Holy Reason

A number of churches celebrated Evolution Sunday today. Darn, I missed it. Somebody really ought to let me know when Plate Tectonics Sunday, Particle Theory Sunday and Relativity Sunday come around. Of course, everyone knows that we celebrate Gravity Sunday and Calculus Sunday on the same day – Newton’s birthday.

As much as I appreciate the work of scientists and think we all benefit from the fruit of their labor, I don’t think I want to organize my liturgical life around the saints of naturalism. The worship of human reason is a greater temptation in the post-modern West than the worship of the state.
