Since 2009 is the 200 year birthday anniversary of Charles Darwin and 150 years since the publication of his book, Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection, I thought it would be nice to celebrate by declaring 2009 a Bright year! Richard Dawkins’ article on the Brights talks about introducing a new meme by introducing the word “Bright” as a noun and encouraging people to “come out”. A Bright is a person with a naturalist view of the world devoid of any supernatural being such as a God or designer. If you are interested in a Bright future, you can register on the Brights website and help spread the meme!
