Here’s an upcoming interesting lecture at the Faraday Institute in Cambridge:
American evolutionary science expert Professor Ken Miller will give a talk next Tuesday about the increasing support of the anti-evolutionary Intelligent Design movement at the Faraday Institute’s termly public lecture.
“Professor Miller will argue that the popularity of this movement, which is pitted against Darwinian evolution, points to a profound failure on the part of the scientific community to articulate its own message effectively,” said Katie Turnbull, Communications Officer at the Faraday Institute. “He believes that analysing the appeal of this concept is central to developing an understanding of why evolution is still resisted a century and a half after the publication of On the Origin of Species.”
The lecture is free and open to everyone. It takes place at on Tuesday 28 April, 5.30pm in the Queen’s Lecture Theatre, Emmanuel College. The lecture will be followed by free refreshments and a chance to meet the speaker and browse the bookstall.
I don’t know whether it’ll be webcast; I know I’ll be unlikely to be able to make it on Tuesday, which is a shame – I’ve read about Ken Miller in the blogosphere.
