In working on the front lines of the creation/evolution fight, NCSE's Josh Rosenau has found that creationist arguments rely on widespread misconceptions about science and about evolution in particular. Just as parasites exploit weaknesses to gain access to new hosts, creationist ideas spread by preying on these misconceptions. By clearing up those misconceptions, we can help prevent those bad ideas from spreading.

This event is part of the McGill Symposium on Islam and Evolution.
