Judge Jones Speaking at Framingham State College Next Week

Framingham State College kicks off its Year of Darwin series next week with Judge John Jones, who will be speaking at the Dwight Performing Arts Center at 7:00 PM. Jones, you will recall, presided over the Dover, PA case (Kitzmiller v. Dover) in which the advocates of Intelligent Design Creationism were slapped upside their pointy little heads by the conservative Reagan appointee. Remember that one? The one where the Discovery Institute slinked away with its tail between its legs at the last minute and Michael Behe came off the witness stand smelling like a septic tank? Yeah, I thought you did.

Jones will, of course, be discussing the Dover case and why Intelligent Design isn't science. That's a week from today — November 30, 7:00 PM. Admission is a measly $5.

Future speakers in the series include Daniel Dennett (February 12) and Sean Carroll (March 31).
