Academic Speaker Series: Is it Time to Abandon Darwin?
Join us as Kenneth Miller, bestselling author, university professor and repeat guest on The Colbert Report, offers an ironclad argument for the theory of evolution.
You're invited to explore 'Evolution in a Molecular Age' with Kenneth Miller on Monday April 1 at 7 p.m. as he joins us on the Landmark College Campus. More than a century and a half after the publication of On the Origin of Species, evolution remains a contentious and divisive issue in the United States. In an age of molecular biology, when whole genomes can be sequenced and analyzed, many continue to ask if Darwin's ideas are valid. As we will see, genomic biology is not only consistent with evolution, but provides a rich new dimension in which the diversity of life can be studied and understood.
Kenneth Miller has been called "the public guardian of evolution in America." In popular talks, he brilliantly defangs and debunks the Intelligent Design movement, which claims that evolution is "just a theory." Miller turns contentious debate over evolution into an opportunity for greater public understanding about both science and religion. "Intelligent Design is a science-stopper," says Kenneth Miller. Eighty years after the notorious Scopes Monkey Trial, evolution is still under attack in America.
A bestselling author, university professor and repeat guest on The Colbert Report, Miller deftly dismantles every claim put forth by proponents of Intelligent Design. What is left, simply, is the truth and beauty of evolution—any why it matters. In offering the definitive, ironclad, and in its own way, beautiful, argument for the theory of evolution, Miller shows you how America can, and why it must, save its scientific soul.
Be part of the conversation taking place in the Brooks M. O'Brien Auditorium at 7 p.m. in the East Academic Building on the Landmark College Campus. This event is part of the Spring Academic Speaker Series and is free and open to the public.
