Join us for Center for Inquiry Northeast Ohio's February Cleveland chapter meeting, which will be its annual Darwin Day event! (This year, it's on Darwin Day proper).

The meeting will feature a presentation by philosopher and author Vern Westfall, titled "Darwin and the Other Half of Evolution". Vern describes the general theme of his talk as:

"The wonder of life is not in its many shapes and forms, it is in what all these many forms share."

Vern Westfall is a philosopher, author, pilot, and a designer of fine homes. He holds a bachelors degree from Miami University and attended the Air Force Academy. He has flown many aircraft including jet tankers and supersonic spy planes. He has taught at the college level in Korea, has been through numerous survival schools and has been stationed in and traveled extensively in Asia and Europe. Now, semi retired, he enjoys designing new homes for select clients, writing, staying current with new discoveries, and delving into the concepts that shape our current social and scientific perspectives.

Vern's books include a novel, "Darwin's Paw: Life Is a Matter of Perspective" (2012), and the autobiographical "The Philosophical Pilot: Three Fathers, Three Wives, Nine Lives" (2013).

As usual, light refreshments will be served... along with Darwin Day cake!

Hope to see you there! :)
