The Legacy of Darwin Intelligent Design Conference

Douglas County Event Center, Castle Rock, Colorado
Past Event 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.
