Think evolution is “just a theory”? Think intelligent design is science and not a religious argument? Think teaching ID along with evolution in the life science classroom is harmless? Think again. Please join us for a very special talk and learn the truth about intelligent design.

Title: Not over after Dover: what we learned from Kitzmiller v. Dover
Date: Monday, January 25, 2010
Time: 3:00PM – 4:00PM, discussion panel and reception afterward
Venue: East Ballroom, Lory Student Center
Host: Jeric Harper, Biology
The 2005 Kitzmiller v Dover trial was a test of the constitutionality of teaching intelligent design – and ID failed. In response, the creationist movement has evolved new strategies calling for teaching the “strengths and weaknesses of evolution” or the “critical analysis of evolution”, but these turn out to be creationism in disguise. Dr. Scott will discuss the Kitzmiller trial and its aftermath. This presentation for the Colloquium in the Life Sciences is sponsored by ASCSU and is open to the public. Please contact Jeric if you would like to meet with Dr. Scott during her visit to CSU.
