Darwin & Intelligent Design @ TCU

Dr. Sober is a philosopher of science who has published extensively on the modern synthesis of Creationism and Philosophy known as Intelligent Design. He is the Hans Reichenbach Professor and William F. Vilas Research Professor in the Philosophy Department at the University of Wisconsin—Madison, and his book, "Did Darwin Write the Origin Backwards?" was recently published by Prometheus Books.

His presentation at TCU is entitled, "Darwin and Intelligent Design," and will explore his criticism of both Darwin's composition as well as the modern efforts of Creationists.

    It was nice to get out to a lecture. Also good to see some people we hadn't seen in a while.

    Talk is right inside the entrance!

    Okay, I plan on being there by 6:45 but in the event that we don't find each other and sit together, give me a shout after the talk:[masked]-0297. Potbelly's always a solid choice; they close at 9. I bet the Mellow Mushroom stays open til 10, and there's also Fuzzy's Taco Shop on Berry, right around the corner from TCU.

    Bill and I will be there. If anyone would like to meet up afterwards, that would be great.

    I'll be there, with my brother, unless there's a hold up at work or on the road.

    Thanks for the campus map, Zachary. I'll be there! I'm definitely up for getting something to eat before or after...

    Given the history of the Intelligent Design movement, I am inherently skeptical of this speaker.


    Here's a review of his book from the Chicago Journals' Philosophy of Science association:

    At the very least, it sounds like he's approaching the issue scientifically. Should be pretty interesting to hear in person. Hope I can make it!

      Unfortunately I can't make it tomorrow but I wouldn't mind if this group did more on the south side. The Mellow Mushroom has 'Blue collar Mondays' with $1 PBR (I think!), Prima's pizza @ Hulen/Grandbury is another BYOB Italian place, I'm sure there are other good prospects on this side of town. Anyone else interested in south side meetups chime in and I'll try to set something up.
