As the millions of people who visit its homepage daily know, Google often tweaks its famous logo to celebrate various holidays, from the expected (New Year's Day and Martin Luther King Jr. Day) to the obscure (Jackson Pollack's birthday). The common thread is that all are relatively free of controversy. But today's Google.com tribute to Charles Darwin's 200th birthday is being interpreted as a philosophical statement of sorts. Does the company, whose motto is "Do no evil," actually subscribe to atheism? At least one Christian blogger believes the search engine may be "denying Genesis 1:1." An atheist blogger, meanwhile, finds reason to rejoice and muse that fundamentalist Christians may be switching to Yahoo! "for the day."
