Today marks the 205th birthday of the great British naturalist Charles Darwin, whose famous theory of evolution -- first advanced in 1859 -- still stirs passionate debate between scientists and creationists.

The UAB Department of Biology will mark Darwin's birthday -- and tout the value of scientific research -- with a two-day event, "Darwin Day: A Celebration of Science," on Thursday and Friday, according to a UAB news release.

Most "Darwin Day" activities will take place at the Edge of Chaos conference venue at the Lister Hill Library on campus.
