Celebrate Alfred Wallace’s Birthday on Jan. 8 with Historian Michael Flannery

One of the greatest naturalists of the nineteenth century, Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) co-discovered evolution by natural selection with Charles Darwin. But unlike Darwin, Wallace became convinced that life and the universe displayed clear evidence of purposeful design. Wallace’s birthday is January 8. Join us for an online birthday party as we celebrate the life and legacy of Wallace with historian Michael Flannery, editor of the new book Intelligent Evolution: How Alfred Russel Wallace’s World of Life Challenged Darwinism (2020). Learn why Flannery thinks Wallace could be regarded as one of the founding fathers of the modern intelligent design movement. Flannery will be interviewed by Discovery Institute Vice President John West, followed by Q&A with the audience.

Be sure to get your copy of Intelligent Evolution: How Alfred Russel Wallace’s World of Life Challenged Darwinism.
