Darwin Day Lecture in Oklahoma

February 12, 2009

You probably already know that today is the bicentennial of Darwin’s birthday. What you may not know is that I’m giving a talk tonight (7pm) at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Natural History Museum on “Was there a Darwinian Revolution?” It is the open address for the University of Oklahoma’s “Darwin 2009” celebrations. 

If you’re in the area, do drop along. Later on in the week, I may get around to posting slides.

    And the lecture was REALLY good! Full house (ca 350 persons). Unexpectedly, there were no questions/comments from creationists. Thanks John for your efforts this week at Oklahoma.

    Why the hate directed towards the religious? (No really, why?)
    Science owes a great debt to Christianity. Faraday, Maxwell, Pascal, Mendel, are but a few of the devout Christians responsible for founding most of the branches of what is considered to be modern science.
    Am I missing something?

    @DaveW
    Where is the “hate directed towards the religious”? I don’t see any in this post or the single comment before yours. Aren’t you projecting just a little? And making assumptions about what I say/believe?
