Michael Shermer, a leading skeptic and bestselling author, will speak at Cato
on October 12 on his new book, Why Darwin Matters: The Case against Intelligent Design.
Providing highly critical commentary will be Jonathan Wells, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design.
Shermer, once a creationist himself, argues that evolutionary theory is the foundation of modern biology. He concludes, "Darwin matters because evolution matters. Evolution matters because science matters. And I liked this line: "Of the three intellectual giants of that epoch--Darwin, Marx, and Freud--only Darwin is still relevant for the simple reason that his theory was right." Join us next Thursday
