Can I Believe in God and Accept Evolution? // ¿Puedo Creer en Dios y al Mismo Tiempo Aceptar la Evolución?

Featuring: 
Peter M.J. Hess, Ph.D.

Time: 
3:00am
Date: 
June 21, 2010
Location: 
Schoenberg Hall
St. Joseph Parish
212 N 4th St.
Yakima, WA


In the last decade there has been much sensational news coverage of creationism, “intelligent design,” and the biological theory of evolution. Is there really a conflict between these various positions? Can we both (1) believe in God, and at the same time (2) accept the evolutionary assumptions of modern biology? Not only is it possible, but it is essential that religious traditions integrate the evolutionary world view into their theologies and religious cultures.

Dr. Peter Hess is a Theologian and a practicing Catholic.

Admission is free

En la década pasada había muchas noticias dramáticas sobre el creacionismo, "diseño inteligente," y la teoría biológica de evolución. ¿Hay un conflicto entre estas posiciones? ¿Podemos (1) creer en Dios, y al mismo tiempo, (2) aceptar las ideas evolucionarias de la biología moderna?

El Dr. Peter Hess, del Centro Nacional para la Educación Científica en Oakland, CA, y un católico, explorará unas dimensiones importantes de la relación entre ciencia y religión.

Dr. Hess habla español si tiene preguntas, pero la lectura estará en puro inglés.

Leap of Faith: Intelligent Design after Dover

Featuring: 
Joshua Rosenau
Josh Rosenau
Time: 
9:30pm
Date: 
May 16, 2010
Location: 

Berkeley Main Library, 3rd Floor Meeting Room
2090 Kittredge St.,
Berkeley, CA 94704

While many hoped that the Kitzmiller v. Dover trial of 2005 would put the final nail in intelligent design creationism's coffin, but creationism continues evolving. Since the judge's devastatingly thorough ruling in Dover, PA, new strategies have arrived in laws passed in Louisiana, new science standards passed in Texas, and a new textbook issued as a successor to Of Pandas and People – the textbook supplement central to the Kitzmiller trial. Rosenau, programs and policy director at the National Center for Science Education, will discuss NCSE's work defending science education and explore the ways that scientists and non-scientists alike can block such attacks on science.
