Celebrate Darwin Day at NDSU with Dr. Eugenie Scott!

Dr. Eugenie Scott will be the keynote speaker for NDSU's Darwin Day celebrations next week! Her address is titled "The Evolution of Creationism" and I'm sure will be fascinating. All the information is below, and also on NDSU's Biological Sciences webpage. The panel discussion on evolution Friday afternoon should also be worthwhile. Dr. Scott is on the panel. Among the other panelists, I can personally vouch for Dr. Allan Ashworth, my geology professor, who is an absolute riot; and Dr. Davis Cope from the mathematics department, whom I have interviewed, and who is one of the most wonderful human beings I've ever met.

I hope to see all you locals there!
