Re: posting the evolution course - Sure, what the heck. The church leader might want to audit the course and offer a critique of the content.

Yes, I just watched it yesterday. I assume there will be more.  I guess I should have bookmarked the page I stopped at.  I am taking  notes just like school, so eventually I will be able to find my place.   They advertised the classes for people 20-50, but I snuck in.  Also posted it on FB.   I have been on that discussion group Cuddle Time with Rob and Max which several of the younger members of the group are involved, along with several Christians.   One guy on there, a leader in the church, is advocating that evolution is not true. I am tempted to post the evolution course on that page.

I'm in there too, Marlys.  Have you watched the Monty Python video yet?  Funny stuff.

I just signed up for the course called “Think Again”.   The lectures are short videos.  The course takes about 5 hours a week.  It is free.   This course will probably be mentioned tomorrow night at Tom’s class.

Blows my mind too.  I've already signed up for one of the courses and I'm watching the lectures now.  This platform is so well thought-out.  Multiple universities contributing to the content.  Classes include discussion forums, exercises, quizzes, an online textbook, and links to local meetup groups for additional study and practice.  And it's all free.  Doesn't get much better than that.

I've sent this earlier today to my son who is majoring in Biology at KU encouraging him to sign up for this course and get free certification that should look good on his resume when he goes out and searches for a job upon graduation. Also, there are many other courses that blow my mind at Corsera on history, sociology, math, chemistry, genetics, physics, etc.... https://www.coursera.org/courses?cats=biology

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  

Introduction to the science of human origins, the fossil and archaeological record, and genetic ancestry of living and ancient human populations. The course emphasizes the ways our evolution touches our lives, including health and diet, and explores how deep history may shape the future of our species.  Sign up here:  https://www.coursera.org/course/humanevolution
