Should November 24th be an international holiday?

I asked this question because on 11/24/1859 Darwin killed the god fantasy which was the human race's greatest mistake. Not everyone got the memo but making this an international holiday would help dense people understand.

"On the Origin of Species, published on 24 November 1859, is a work of scientific literature by Charles Darwin which is considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology."
-- Wikipedia

"Darwin was the first to use data from nature to convince people that evolution is true, and his idea of natural selection was truly novel. It testifies to his genius that the concept of natural theology, accepted by most educated Westerners before 1859, was vanquished within only a few years by a single five-hundred-page book. On the Origin of Species turned the mysteries of life's diversity from mythology into genuine science."
