The Legacy of Darwin Intelligent Design Conference
October 30, 2009 - October 31, 2009

This year marks the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his culture-shaking book, On the Origin of Species.
What has been the cultural impact of a century-and-a-half of Darwinism? And what is the ground-breaking evidence for intelligent design?
The answers to these questions will be explored at the Legacy of Darwin Intelligent Design Conference
on October 30-31 in Castle Rock, Colorado. Sponsored by Shepherd Project Ministries, this conference features several speakers from Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture, including Dr. Stephen Meyer
, author of The Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design
; Dr. Michael Behe
, author of Darwin's Black Box
and The Edge of Evolution
; Dr. David Berlinski
, author of The Devil's Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensions
; and Dr. John G. West
, author of Darwin Day in America: How Our Politics and Culture Have Been Dehumanized in the Name of Science.
