Minnesota Atheists is once again honored to have as our speaker Dr. Hector Avalos. The title of his presentation is ?From Darwin to Hitler? How Creationists Revise History.?

One of the most persistent arguments being used against evolution is that it led to the Holocaust. The movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed makes this argument a cornerstone of its creationist agenda. Dr. Avalos will refute this myth, and he will expose the real roots of the Holocaust in Christian anti-Judaism.

Dr. Hector Avalos is Professor of Religious Studies at Iowa State University, where he was named Professor of the Year in 1996 and Master Teacher in 2003. He received his Ph.D. in Biblical and Near Eastern Studies from Harvard in 1991, and is the author of numerous books, including Fighting Words: The Origins of Religious Violence (2005) and The End of Biblical Studies (2007). His talk is based on a chapter he wrote for The Christian Delusion (2010) edited by John Loftus.

His talk will be preceded by a Minnesota Atheists business meeting and followed by a trip to The Panda Garden Buffet.
