Unintelligent Design in Worcester

The Greater Worcester Humanists have finally rescheduled Abigail Hafer's talk on evolution and ID-Creationism for tomorrow night at the Unitarian Universalist Church on Holden Street. I plan on attending; this will hopefully work out better than it did when the talk was last scheduled for February.

Unintellegent Design

To belatedly celebrate Darwin Day we will have a special guest speaker, Abigail Hafer, professor of biology from Curry College. She'll be giving a presentation called "Unintelligent Design," which is a methodical debunking of so-called "Intelligent Design" theory. The presentation "Unintelligent Design," by Curry College Professor Abigail Hafer is "a richly entertaining evolutionist's view of the human body. Though no less beautiful or marvelous for being flawed, she argues, the human body has many faulty design features that would never have been the choice of an intelligent creator. Citing engineering flaws from the partial blockage of the eye’s retina to the vulnerable external positioning of men’s testes, Hafer illustrates her points with wit and erudition. Professor Hafer holds a B.A. in biology from Swarthmore College and a Ph.D. from Oxford University in England."
The meeting starts at 7:00 PM at the UU Church of Worcester, 90 Holden Street.
