"The Attack on Evolution"

Intelligent Design is really picking up momentum if Northwestern thinks enough of this topic to devote a seminar to it.

Northwestern Seminar

Given by Eugenie Scott from the National Center for Science Education. It will be held at 12:00 noon on Thursday June 23 in the Baldwin auditorium in the Lurie Medical Research Center.

This is an excellent opportunity to hear about this very important issue from perhaps the nations expert of the topic.

Genie Scott has been a leader in the fight against the substitution of creationism, intelligent design, or other religious beliefs for the teaching of biology in high school in the United States. It is important for the medical community to recognize that the same forces that oppose evolution also oppose stem cell research and many of the reproductive rights won in recent years. Genie will discuss the importance of this linkage and the ways that the medical community may become more active in the area.
