PULLMAN – Darwin on the Palouse, a free annual even hosted by Humanists of the Palouse “to celebrate humanity, science and rational thought,” will be held Feb. 6 on the Washington State University campus in Pullman.
Historian Richard Carrier will be presenting on Ancient Roman Creationism: Scientific Pagans vs. Armchair Christians. He will discuss the ancient debate between creationists and natural selectionists, how ancient intelligent design advocates, “were far more scientific than their counterparts today, and what this means for the actual origins of real science,” according to an announcement.
Deputy Director of the National Center for Science Education Glenn Branch wil be presenting on After Kitzmiller, What’s Next for Creationism? Kitzmiller v. Dover, the 2005 case establishing the unconstitutionality of teaching intelligent design creationism in the public schools, was a pivotal event in the history of the creationism/evolution controversy in the United States. Branch will discuss why Kitzmiller was the effective end of the second phase of anti-evolution strategy and what the third phase is going to be like.
The event will be at 6:30 p.m. in the WSU CUB Junior Ballroom.
