Leading Expert on Evolutionary Theory Today
David Seaborg, expert on Darwin himself as well as a distinguished, cutting-edge evolutionary biologist, will deliver the keynote power point presentation on current evolutionary theory: Evolution Today: Current State of Knowledge and Controversies. He will cover what is known today as well as the unsolved problems and controversies. He will be dressed up as Charles Darwin and impersonating him in an exciting and entertaining performance! After his talk, David will show us fossils and live animals that illustrate evolutionary principles and he will allow us to hold them — only if we want to! Then David will facilitate a Q&A discussion about evolution wherein we will have the chance to share what Charles Darwin and the theory of evolution — and the controversy with creationists concerning its teaching — mean to each of us, sharing how these things affect our lives.
Finally, enjoy a potluck dinner party with speakers and audience alike! Bring a scrumptious dish to share — no assigned dishes. Meet the illustrious speakers and all the interesting celebrants of Darwin Day — indulge in conversations all around. Everyone is encouraged to ask these experts all the questions on their minds! We look forward to seeing you at Humanist Hall, Sunday, the 24th!
