Special January Speaker Meeting
Saturday, January 23, 10am-noon
Botts Hall, Special Collections Library
423 Central Avenue NE, Albuquerque
Free and open to the public
December 20 was the anniversary of a very special day! “The anniversary of what?” you ask: “Vaspasian claims the title of Emperor in the year 69?” No. “The release of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ in 1946?” Nope. “Uri Geller’s birthday?” Nooooo. Hint: It’s not the day that would live in infamy, but it did mention “breathtaking inanity.” Ah, now you guessed it.
It’s the tenth anniversary of Kitzmiller v. Dover, when intelligent design went on trial!
Our meeting will start with a viewing of the PBS’ Nova “Judgment Day: Intelligent Design on Trial”. Following, we’ll ask for your thoughts about the debate between evolution and intelligent design: should it be taught in secular schools and what’s happened in the ten years since Dover.
Please come, watch and participate.
