Evolution / Intelligent Design - A Civil Debate and Discussion (June 12th)
"What is Evolution….What is Intelligent Design?"
A Civil Debate and Discussion
Hosted by the Fayette Freethought Society
The controversy continues:
• In 2009, a Gallup poll revealed that only 39% of Americans "believe in the theory of evolution."
• Immigration is spreading creationism across Europe.
• In the Muslim world, creationism is on the rise.
Please join in the discussion on Saturday, June 12th. Audience questions/participation is encouraged.
Presenting the evidence for evolution is Dr. Mark Farmer, Professor and Head of the Department of Cellular Biology at University of Georgia. His current research includes "the origin and evolution of eukaryotic cells, one of the most exciting yet poorly understood phenomena in all of cell biology."
Presenting arguments in favor of Intelligent Design is Dr. Charles Thaxton, (Fayetteville, GA resident) creationist author and Fellow of the Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture. He was the editor of the first edition of the controversial creationism/Intelligent Design textbook, "Of Pandas and People." The book was featured prominently in Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District. http://www.discovery.org/p/96
The event will be moderated by Dr. Dan Everett, Assistant Professor of Computer Science at University of Georgia.
