December 13, 2006
Discovery Institute's latest book is hot off the presses—and we invite you to join us for a reception to celebrate the publication of Darwin's Conservatives: The Misguided Quest
. (Click here to buy your copy

Conservatives such as George Will, James Q. Wilson, and Larry Arnhart have mounted a vigorous defense of Darwinian biology, even urging conservatives to draw on Darwin's theory for support. In this small but incisive book, CSC Associate Director Dr. John West
argues that the quest for "Darwinian conservatism" is misguided and fundamentally flawed. Contrary to claims by Darwin's conservatives, Darwinian evolution promotes relativism rather than traditional morality, it fosters utopianism rather than limited government, and it is corrosive, rather than supportive, of free will and religious belief. Finally, and most importantly, Darwinian evolution is in tension with the scientific evidence.
Now is your chance to meet the author, John West, at a reception and discussion. The book party will be held on Wednesday, December 13 from 4:30 to 6 p.m.
at Discovery Institute located at 1511 Third Ave., Suite 808, downtown Seattle, WA. and there is no cost to attend.
