God, Darwin, and Design: Lessons from the Dover Monkey Trial
by Dr. Kenneth Miller
Professor of Biology, Brown University
What is the Lecture About?
Miller was the lead witness in the Pennsylvania "intelligent design" case that began in September 2005, and which has been front-page news since it started. The case involves a group of parents who are suing the school district for requiring high school biology teachers to read a four-paragraph statement to students that casts doubt on Darwin's theory of evolution. The paragraphs imply that life could not have arisen without the help of an intelligent hand (i.e. "intelligent design"). On the stand, Miller noted that virtually every prominent scientific organization in the United States has upheld Darwin's theory of evolution as an unshakeable pillar of science and that "intelligent design" is "a form of creationism."
