Webcast: God, Design and Darwin

I was asked to pass along the following announcement:

On April 4, 2008 at 7:00 pm CT (GMT – April 5, 2008 at 12:00 am), Dr. Kenneth R. Miller, a professor of biology at Brown University will give a talk entitled God, Darwin, and Design: Lessons from the Dover Monkey Trial. Miller was a lead witness in the Pennsylvania “intelligent design” case that began in September 2005, and which has been front-page news since it started.

We would like to invite members of your organization and/or visitors of your website to view our Live Webcast of the lecture, April 4, 2008 at 7:00 pm CT (GMT – April 5, 2008 at 12:00 am). If possible, posting a link to this event on your website or forwarding the information to your members who may be interested in this lecture is greatly appreciated. Our webcasts are very high quality, and viewers can submit questions to the speaker through our website and the speaker answers the online questions in real time. The webcasting software we use requires viewers to download a small plugin, but it is very simple and quick to install.

A link to the details of the lecture and the webcast could be found at:

Could be worth checking into.

    While I won’t pretend to grok Dr. Miller’s view that scientific thought and religious thought aren’t mutually exclussive, he is a bit of a hero of mine sceintifically and ethically.

    I think that the group of scientists, teachers, students, etc. who are theistically minded and proponents of evolutionary biology (Darwinian, not ID, not creationism) are our most underappreciated allies in the battles to keep God out of our science classrooms — and good science in.

    Thanks for the notice. I can’t hear the live webcast, because unfortunately my computer and speakers aren’t on speaking terms right now. I hope they will have the lecture available for download in the near future; I don’t want to miss this.

    P.S. I saw on the link that Dr. Miller currently lives in Rehoboth, MA. What a small world! I used to live there. It’s a beautiful part of the country…I’m jealous.
